Poona Kheera Cucumber


50 days | I have grown more in love with unusual heirloom cucumbers every year. Poona Kheera is no different and will be new in our garden for the coming growing season. Said to have sweet golden skin and a juicy, crisp texture it is light yellow when young, but develops some rosy blushing when mature. Flavor is said to be best when blushing has begun. A vigorous, productive grower of 4-5″ fruit.



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.
