Welcome to Johnson's Home & Garden
A great slicing cucumber, these perfectly straight garden favorites have thick, sweet, mild flesh with excellent flavor that makes this a superb choice for salads or for dipping.
If picked when they are small, these cukes are good for pickling, too. Defined as an heirloom cucumber because home gardeners keep on growing this old favorite for its large, flavorful fruits!
Straight Eight Cucumbers are a vining cucumber plant.
In full sun, sow a few seeds over a hill that is 12" tall and 2' across with well-drained soil. For smaller gardens, plant alongside a fence or trellis. When plants are 2" tall, thin to three plants per hill. Plant at three week intervals up to midsummer for fresh cucumbers all season. Keep fruits picked.
Planting Depth: .5"
Seed Spacing: Sow Heirloom Straight Eight Cucumber seeds 2' feet apart in rows.
