Kheera

  • Cucumber Kheera

Originating from Bangladesh, this pleasantly mild-flavoured, mid-sized cucumber has a triangular cross-section when cut. Remove the male flowers to avoid bitterness in the fruits, which will begin to appear in July from an April sowing. For eating pick fruits when over 15cm long: they grow squat and stout rather than conventionally long and thin. Be sure to let the fruit fully ripen (to yellow or brown) or you won’t tell the difference between this and a normal cucumber, but grown under cover it’s easy, fruitful and relatively trouble free.
