A recent introduction, Cucumber Merlin is a heavy yielding all female cucumber variety that is probably the best of its type available to the home garden market.

Being parthenocarpic, this variety is a reliable producer of delicious fruits best picked at 15 - 17cm long.

It is a powdery mildew resistant variety, which when picked regularly produces lots of medium size fruits of 15-18cm long. The cucumbers are slightly ribbed, cylindrical and dark green. Merlin shows good resistance to powdery mildew, and some resistance of mosaic virus and downy mildew.
