Cucumis sativus

A hybrid gynoecious pickler with excellent yields and strong disease resistance. Slightly longer, slimmer shaped, dark green, stippled fruits have a slight taper to the end. Fruit can be harvested by hand or mechanically. Another variety that's wonderful for home and market gardens alike. Gynoecious cucumbers grow almost  all female flowers. The result is more cucumbers than from monoecious cultivars. For best results, farmers mix gynoecious cultivars with monoecious cultivars at a ratio of about 9 to 1.

Approx. 20 Seeds/pkt

How to Grow

Cucumbers grow best in a rich, warm, sandy loam soil. Before planting, work into the native soil 30cm (12") deep large amounts of garden compost or composted manure. As cooler soil will reduce germination and increase the chance of  the seed rotting before it sprouts, wait until the soil has reached a temperature of at least 18C (66F) before planting. Mound the soil up into hills about 15-20cm (6-8") high and about 30-60cm (12-24") across. Space the hills about 120cm (4') apart. Sow the seed 2cm (3/4") deep with 6 to 8 seeds per hill then after the seed sprouts, thin to 3 or 4 plants per hill. If you have limited space, most cucumbers grow on trellises. Protect the plants from any late spring/early summer frosts and keep the plants evenly watered through the growing season. Even soil moisture is very important as cucumbers become very bitter if the plant becomes moisture stressed by hot dry weather. To prevent damage to the plant, harvest the cucumbers by cutting them from the vine with a sharp knife - do not pull or twist them from the vine.
