Kaiser Alexander Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) A very rare heirloom cucumber named after the Russian Emperor Alexander. Vines produce 6-7" fruits that finish with a reptilian-like skin, well after the eating stage. An extremely unique heirloom that is one of the crunchiest varieties and arguably our new favourite on the farm. Best consumed at the earlier 4-6" green fruit stage.
