Armenian Striped Cucumber is an heirloom, open-pollinated variety that originated in Armenia. This Persian-style cucumber is commonly referred to as snake melon, as it is more closely-related to a honeydew melon than an actual cucumber. You'll also see this variety called "painted serpent" due to the long, curved appearance of the fruit.

The fruits are long and slender with slight ridges among the alternating light green and dark green stripes.
