Our 3.5 lb Armenian Cucumber

This Armenian cucumber weighed over 3.5 lb:

It grew in the greenhouse and since it cooled off after Labor Day we’ve been getting more of these beauties. They are not cucumbers, but melons and they do NOT get bitter. During the August heat our cucumbers were not edible, but the Armenian cucumber were great, although we didn’t get many.
They make a seedless salad because it’s so easy to get rid of the seeds. Half the cucumbers and remove the seeds with a spoon:

Since we didn’t have other melons to cross pollinated in the greenhouse, we are saving the seeds. Hopefully the seeds are viable. I had ordered a large pack from Baker Creek and only a small percentage sprouted.
Here’s the salad:

As always, delicious!
