More on Heat Resistant Armenian Cucumbers

Not only are Armenian cucumbers heat tolerant, drought resistant, tender-skinned, and non-seedy, they have the additional virtue of staying crisp for a day or so after they're sliced and drizzled with vinegrette.

We usually try to make just enough of a tomato, onion, cucumber salad for one meal, because we know by the next day, any leftovers will be a little soggy. Not these crunchy things though. And the slices look like pretty little flowers.

  2. We wouldn't have to worry about heat resistant here! This has been one of the coolest summers on record here in Michigan. Yesterday, we hit 84 degrees...the hottest day so far this July! My tomatoes are begging for some heat and sun!

  6. Though it's 2012... thought I'd still add my two cents worth. I've used them as a substitute in my traditional zucchini relish recipe. It came out fine. It does taste a little bit different, but not that much. Another accidental discovery for me was putting them into Fall soups. Yeah, really. Those big ones that get a hard skin like a squash (when you're sick of them and they keep producing), store just like squash. It imparts a mild cucumber flavor. My accidental recipe - Hot Italian sausage meatballs, onion, butternut squash, armenian cucumber(prepare both 'squashes' by removing seeds and skin & then cube), yard long beans (another great veggie that stands up to 100 degree + weather), a red bellpepper, and a bit of seasoning of salt, pepper (red flakes?), and herbs of choice such as rosemary or tarragon. Sometimes I use a stock base, but the soup is flavorful enough that water works fine. Don't overcook the veggies, it's supposed to be a brothy soup with chunks of vegetables in it.

  15. When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub tap to add.http://www.plumpinguk.co.uk/bath-taps.html

    When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also, many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
