I got a gift of a most unusual cucumber from my neighbour. She had grown it from seed – Crystal Lemon. I had already planted two cucumber plants and was wondering if I had space in the greenhouse for one more. However I decided I had to try it. Firstly the leaves are not as big as regular cucumber plants so it did not take up as much room, but the yield was fantastic. If space is a consideration for you, but you would like to grow cucumbers next year, it would be worth considering. The unusual shape was a real talking point. The skin is hard and prickly. But most important the flavour was good-unlike any cucumber I have ever tasted.
