Crunchy sweet aromatic flavour, this is beautiful. They have a very thin, almost translucent skin, you can simply bite through this with no need to peel unless particularly sensitive to cucumbers. These fruits are mid length (16-18cm) and are a pretty pale green colour. Outstanding female variety. Price for 4 seeds.
SOW: inside, February to early May, in individual pots, keep moist & warm at 21°C. Once they have 3 true leaves pot on, and when about 10cm tall they can be planted
GROW: Delistar really does need the additional shelter and warmth of a greenhouse to do its best. You can train the plants on canes or stings – leaving space in your greenhouse for other crops. Although Delistar is a female cuc male flowers can appear when stressed & these should be removed immediately: stress is most often caused by watering and temperature changes.
EAT: simply bite through these with no need to peel (unless particularly sensitive to cucumbers) to enjoy these tasty fruits.
