Each year we swear that we’re cutting down on the number of varieties that we’re going to grow for the season. Then, without fail, we find some fun and unusual items that get added to the list. We’ve managed to reduce the number of varieties to “only” 100+ (down from almost 200 varieties in our first season.) This year a couple of our new favorites are lemon and dinosaur egg cucumbers. If the names alone weren’t enough to make you curious, then seeing these petite cukes should make you want to try them.
We are just starting to realize the full bounty of the lemon and dinosaur egg cucumbers and we’re pleased with the results of our trellised cucumbers. The curly cukes that grow on the ground sure have some personality, though.
