Cucumis sativa

Min Qty: 40 seeds

Description:  Sets the standard for slicing cucumbers, but used for pickling as well.  One of the most popular varieties. Vigorous vines produce bumper crops. 

Planting Instructions:   68 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 4-6' apart.  If you are planting in hills, plant 3-4 seeds in a ring around the top of the hill, spacing your hills about 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.
