Boothby's Blonde Cucumber
Boothby’s Blonde Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) This open-pollinated heirloom has been grown by the Boothby family of Livermore, Maine for over five generations. A prolific producer of plump fruit with creamy-blonde skin turning to yellow when mature. A mild sweetness makes it great for eating out of hand. A favourite of our farm dog ‘Leo’ who often raids the vines when we are not looking!
