This superb cultivar, bred by Future Seeds of Aleppo is typical of what are commonly known as Lebanese types.  I was able to buy seed when I was in Aleppo at the start of the civil war in 2011 and have been growing and saving seed ever since.  It is unimpeachably delicious and I eat the fruit when they fit comfortably in my hand straight off the vine, they are that good.  Grows outside in a sunny sheltered spot.  very well adapted to a British climate although does best when sown in late March or April in gentle heat as young plants hate the cold.  Best under cover. Once established the vines are prolific with heavy crops of the loveliest cucumber you will ever eat from July until November.
