Wild Cucumber

Wild Cucumber is a vine native to Saskatchewan that grows about 8 feet. In the wild this fast growing annual climbs bushes, but you might try covering a trellis with it. Leaves are light green, yellowish-white flowers are followed by prickly seed balls. This plant does not produce edible fruit. Seeds need cold to germinate properly. Seed in the fall or very early in the spring, or stratify (in damp peat moss in fridge) before seeding. Self-seeds readily.
