The petite 10 cm oval fruit is a bright, creamy white, about the size of a small apple, and is sweet, mild, and very tender. This variety has become almost extinct in America after being introduced here from Australia around 1930s. The small fruit is so tender you can eat it skin and all. The plants are very prolific, producing a generous number of tasty little cucumbers. Maintain regular moisture throughout the growing season and keep vines picked to encourage new fruit formation. Crystal Apple will perform well in containers or raised beds. To grow in containers choose a three to five-gallon container or larger, with good drainage

a.k.a. Lemon Cucumber
Cucumbers need warm soil to germinate. Start indoors at least 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Cucumbers do not like their roots disturbed so use individual pots or “cow pots” and use bottom heat. When transplanting outdoors, plant the entire ‘cow pot” after all danger of frost has passed. Transplant in the early morning and protect the plant from wind, sun, or other elements by using loose straw, a cut milk container, shingles, or other methods of protection. It is better to harden off your cucumber plants.
Sow seeds 2 cm deep in rich warm well-drained soil. Keep soil evenly moist.
