Maturing in 65 days, “round and yellow” describes this tennis ball-sized cucumber. Lemon cucumber does not have a lemon taste, only color, but has a thin, tender skin with a flavor slightly milder than a regular cucumber. Easy to grow, requiring less heat to ripen than some cucumbers, making this a good choice for cooler climates. Clear a garden site with full sun exposure. Don’t plant the cucumbers beside tomatoes or sage. Water the daily and deeply. Give them water early in the morning so the moisture won’t evaporate immediately.
