Another great garden cucumber that just doesn't seem to ever get bitter. These 6 to 9 inch long slicing cucumbers are nearly spineless, making them great sandwich and salad cukes. The vines themselves are pretty rugged and I often plant them near the edges of the beds in children's gardens because they can handle the occasional misstep! English type cucumber.
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.
