This species cucumber comes from India where it is used both raw and cooked. It is a green fruit produced in great abundance along a rather compact vine to 6 ft. or less. The amount of flowers is amazing. Almost solid yellow along the vines. It can be trellised or let it grow along the ground. The fury vines and leaves are not bothered by herbivores. Dosakai appears to need cross pollination with additional Dosakai plants to set fruit. It is immune to all the insects and diseases that affect cucumbers. Fruit ripens starting in 70 days and continues till frost. Some seedlings may have a bit of lemon flavor to them, others not so much. Plant seeds ¼ inch deep after frost. Germination occurs after 7 days.
