Striped Armenian

Cucumis melo var flexuosus
HOW TO GROW ARMENIAN CUCUMBER

Start indoors 3–4 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks after last frost. Direct sow 1-2 weeks after last frost date. Sow in rows or thin to 12" apart 2-3 plants per hill. Melons are heat lovers, and require warm springs and warm nights. In cooler climates, use plastic mulch to increase the soil and air temperature. Using floating row covers also helps. Heavy feeder, thrive in well-decayed organic matter or compost. Moist well-drained soil is important in early stages of pollination. After fruit set, do not water unless the soil is very dry and leaves begin to wilt. Train them just like regular cucumbers on a fence or trellis. Fruits reach 24 inches long, best harvested at about 18 inches. Soil pH 6.8–7.2. Hardiness zones 4. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 890 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1/2 mile.
