One of the best garden and market quality cucumbers out there! It has a sweet flavor and nice texture that goes great in salads or just snacked on straight out of the garden. They grow 6-foot-long vines that resist some of the more troublesome cucumber diseases downy mildew, mosaic virus, and leaf spot.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are an amazing garden staple! Whether you are adding them to salads, making soups and sauces, or just snacking on them right out of the garden, fresh cucumbers can’t be beat. While originally for East Asia they are grown around the world and have be grown as a delicacy from the Romans onwards.

Growing Tips: Cukes want warm, well drained soil and I usually recommend making a mound about 1 foot high and 18 inches across and planting two or three cukes in each mound in order to ensure the drainage needed. Use a good mulch to ensure there is consistent moisture in the soil.
