We love it, we hope you do to!

Poinsett is a very disease-resistant variety that produces a large amount of smooth, dark green-skinned fruit that typically grows to 20cm in length. The perfect 'slicing' cucumber, enjoyed best with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and the early summer sun. Picking encourages more production, so pick liberally.
