Product Description

The standard general purpose variety, excellent for both slicing and picking. The fruits are 12-14" long, about 3" thick, straight, tapered a little toward the stem end, and colored a rich green with black spines. The flesh is white, solid and crisp, with a choice flavor.

Planting Tips:

Soak seeds overnight before planting either individually in rows or hills of 3-6 seeds each. Tighter spacing and higher yields can be achieved through trellising the plants on fences or poles. Continually harvesting will keep the plant producing new fruits.

•Heirloom cucumbers do not like acidic soil! •Frost tender. Heirloom cucumbers love warm weather. •To get an earlier heirloom cucumber crop start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost. •Heirloom cucumbers are thirsty! Never let them go dry. Heirloom cucumbers are over 95 % water. •Fertilize heirloom cucumbers with manures BEFORE planting. •Cucumber beetles are "supposed" to dislike marigolds or wood ashes sprinkled at the base of cucumber vines.

I own a small town home & garden store and I buy my loose garden seeds in bulk and measure them by scoops based on volume not weight. I use the Keystone Seed Scoop "A" for 1/2 ounce and "B" for 1 ounce. I am several times cheaper than the large catalog seed companies. I have been in business over 26 years.
