Maroon Cucumber, West Indian Gherkin Cucumber Seeds

Price for Package of 10 seeds.

(Cucumis anguria) (aka Burr Gherkin) A different species than the common cucumber, traditionally used for pickling as the flesh is thin, tough, and seedy. Introduced from Jamaica in 1793. Cataloged by James J. H. Gregory as early as 1875. He describes it as “A very small, elegant, peculiar sort . . . prolific to an extraordinary degree.” Very drought tolerant. 60-65 days.

The plant produces big vines with distinct leaves, closer to watermelon than cucumbers. Productive amounts of oval spiny fruits 2-3" long and 1½" in diameter. Distinct flavor, used for making small pickles or relish. Very drought tolerant.

The number of seeds in the package and grams?

Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.

If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.

For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
