  • Lemon Cucumber


    Cucumis sativa

    Min Qty: 30 seeds

    Description:  Doesn't look like a cucumber at all, more like a yellow-orange softball or baseball. First introduced in 1894.  Very unique and attractive with a mild, sweet taste that is excellent fresh, in a salad or pickled. 

    Planting Instructions:   65 days. Can be started indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost or direct seeded after danger of frost has passed.  Very tender; will not withstand frost.  Sow seeds 1-1/2" deep, 3" apart in loose, rich soil in rows 3-4' apart.  If you are planting in hills, plant 3-4 seeds in a ring around the top of the hill, spacing your hills about 2-3' apart.  Plant with corn and pole beans, about 2 weeks after the corn is sown.   Cucumbers like good fertility and regular watering for best yields.  Pick fruits frequently to improve production.
