Slicing Cucumber Seed Planting Information:

Cucumbers don't do well if roots are disturbed, so it is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds in soil, 2 to 3 weeks after last frost, when soil and air temperature is at least 60 F. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Cucumbers can also be grown in rows instead of hills, spacing 24" apart in rows 24 - 36" apart. Trellised plants can be grown as close as 10" apart. Cucumbers only take 55 to 65 days to maturity, so you can have multiple harvest by growing 2 to 3 weeks apart. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to 6 ft.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

The soil should be continuously moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get ½" water per week.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Snip the stems with garden scissors when cucumbers are 8 - 12" long for slicing varieties (36" long on Asian types). Harvesting frequently encourages more production. Pick daily to prevent fruit from becoming too large. Over ripe cucumbers will have a bitter taste.

First year trying this variety - just took "1st Place" in Augusta County (VA) Fair with a 32-incher (cut off vine 8/9/5), so it may have gotten longer! Tough to grow straight on the ground, they like to curl. Maybe a trellis would help. Flesh on a shorter one (16") was good, sorta like a musk melon.

These are awesome. They are long but not seedy. They are drier than traditional cukes,so they hold up really well in salads & don't get mushy. Made my first batch of pickles with them, can't wait to try them in 4 weeks!

love these cucumbers, the taste is awesome. We could not find them at the local store this year, so I am really glad Reimer sells them.

Been growing them in hostile home garden environment in Nevada for 6 years now. They are FANTASTIC for pickling and superior to all other pickles.
