In 1931 the breeding process began of the local Damascus cucumber that was grown in the region, a landrace variety was selected for better traits.

Hanna Lazarson 1964: “First we have set as a goal excessive uniformity of fruit shape, we observed that if the seeds chamber is greater relative to the thickness of the coat the cucumber flavor is juicier and finer.”
