Armenian Yard-Long Cucumber


60 days | This mild tasting, light green Armenian cucumber is technically in the melon family. High yields on vines that are best grown on a trellis so the fruit grows straight rather than coiling on the ground. Cucumbers can reach 24″ in length but are best harvest around 15″. If they are too seedy when extra large, simply scrap the seeds out and use as usual! Makes great pickles!



Cucumbers grow just fine along the ground but I love growing them up a trellis. You save massive amounts of space in the garden to plant other crops and they are just beautiful growing towards the sky.

Put your trellis in plant when planting as cucumber grow quickly once germinated and it can quickly get away from you. Use anything you have laying around to grow them up. I have used old fencing, garden trellises, and currently use old wagon wheels. Vines will need a little encouragement to begin climbing your trellis but soon will do all the work themselves.

Harvesting cucumbers that are grown vertically is a breeze. You’ll wonder why you haven’t grown them this way sooner. Long, Japanese and European cucumbers will grow nice and straight when grown vertically.
