Cucumber, Oriental Express Burpless Packet
Cucumber, Oriental Express Burpless
Item # 6360 Cucumis sativus
Not a burp in a bushel!
Orient Express has captured the imagination of home gardeners and people who ordinarily can't eat cucumbers or don't like them. Why? They are completely digestible, can be eaten like fresh celery, and truly there's not a burp in a bushel! Cukes are of excellent quality. Skin is smooth and dark green with white spines. A marvelous slicer, wonderful for salads -- they're crisp, tasty and it isn't necessary to peel them -- the skin is tender and not bitter. Orient Express is a fine variety for making pickles. Has a unique crunchiness, great flavor, high yields and has a wide spectrum of disease tolerance -- including anthracnose, scab, CMV, powdery and downy mildew. Mature in 55 days.
This cucumber is also available in the Slicing Cucumber Collections: 1 packet of each and 1 Jumbo packet of each.
