The Lemon cucumber is a spherical, oval-shaped broad fruit that grows two to three inches in length. Changing color as it matures, its early, lemon-yellow color turns a golden yellow as it ripens. The mild, pleasant taste is complemented by a cool, crisp texture. Resembling a lemon in appearance, the flavor is more delicately sweet and less acidic than the common green cucumber. Similar to a kiwi, Lemon cucumber skin has tiny bristles that are edible but may be easily removed.
I thought they looked cute- so I grew them from seed- they have just about taken over the garden. Fruit is just starting to come on.
