cucumber (Cucumis sativus)

  • The cucumber is a vine in the gourd family. It is widely cultivated and comes in a large number of varieties.
  • The cultivated varieties are far removed from their wild counterparts. There are other species in the gourd family that have some similarity e.g. coccinia indica
  • The gherkin is a small variety of cultivated cucumber.


  • We prefer real vegetables that actually taste of something - not like the supermarket varieties. So we offer really good, easily grown cucumbers. You can grow our varieties either inside or outdoors.
