Cucumbers really like to have warm soil and air.  So, wait until at least a week after the last frost to plant.  Give them well drained soil and at least 8 hours of sun for proper development. We offer slicers, pickling types and also heirloom lemon cukes.

Varieties:

  • Bush Pickle: (54 days) Bush-type habit is handy for small gardens or containers.  Crisp, tender cucumbers with a mild flavor.  4” Long.
  • Lemon: (65 days) Heirloom type that, at first glance, doesn’t look like a cucumber.  But, these round spiny fruit are wonderfully sweet and can be eaten raw or pickled.  3” oval fruit.
  • Summer Top: (40 days) A burpless slicer, this high yielding vine produces 8” long cucumbers in only 40 days.
