I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

Each fruit is the size of a small apple, hence it commonly being known as 'Apple Cucumber' - but as its fruit is a pale yellow in colour when ready to eat its actually called 'Crystal Lemon'.
Reputed to be more digestible than many other cucumbers, this has a mild sweet flavour and is very juicy - just make sure they don't get too large or take on a more golden colour as the skins become bitter. This is an excellent variety for pickling also.
The habit of the plant can be quite sprawling but these can be tied into a trellis or similar.
An interesting novelty variety and a fun favourite with children.
As this is what is known as a 'Ridge Type' it is suitable for outdoor growing, frame growing or growing in a polytunnel or greenhouse. There is no need to remove male flowers on this variety.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
