Variety description

Arola is a mixed flowering slender cucumber for the greenhouse with long, mid to dark green fruits, which are slightly prickly. It has a thicker skin than most slender cucumbers but can be also eat with its skin. Arola is a very resilient cucumber showing strong resistance to pests and disease and can therefore be harvested well into the autumn. Arola is a real cucumber taste experience! Attention: the fruits are primarily borne on the side shoots. Don't remove them otherwise the fruit is removed too. The side shoots should be trained unshortened.
