description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Poona Kheera'"

Ignite your tastebuds with this crisp, juicy flavored cucumber. Its long fruit starts out as a creamy yellow/light green color and matures to a distinct brown as it ages. At full maturity, the fruit resembles the shape of a potato. The plant is both hardy and productive, as well as tasty and unique. Enjoy raw or in salads. Maturity in 60 days. Edited by S.Derr
