Unusual and sweet cucumber variety
It has the color of a lemon, the shape of a ball and the sweet flavor of a cucumber. It is not a new hybrid but an old, forgotten variety from Russia that is well worth growing again. This funny cucumber is also tasty and even convenient. This yellow cucumber, which is a small spherical ball the size of a lemon (8 to 10 cm in diameter) is indeed a real cucumber (Cucumis sativus). Its white flesh is crunchy. The flavor is sweet, without bitterness if you harvest the fruit not too late. The foliage is identical to the leaves of a classic cucumber variety while still being a little less bulky, which is appreciable. And you grow it the same way as any other cucumber.
