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.

CMV – Cucumber Mosaic Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Cucumber Mosaic Virus is a world-wide virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, eggplants, gourds, peppers, pumpkins, spinach, squash, tomatoes, and watermelons. Symptoms include stunted or dwarfed plants, mottling, yellowing, distortion, and wrinkling of the leaves with the edges curling downward, and reduced growth rate and yields. The symptoms on leaves known as "shoestring" effect causes young leaves to appear narrow. The leaves will die and fall off, leaving part or most of the plant bare. The virus causes cucumbers to turn pale and gray, become bumpy and oddly shaped, and have a bitter taste. The virus causes peppers to have severe leaf damage with mosaic and necrotic rings. The peppers may have rings and spots. Tomato plants are usually stunted and have poorly shaped leaves and can cause partial or total crop loss. Plants infected with the virus have little or no marketable fruit. The virus can reduce yields and fruit quality. It is spread by aphids, seeds, and weeds. The virus overwinters in many perennial weeds. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. This virus cannot live in extremely dry conditions. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 79-89 F when aphid infestation is great. Symptoms usually begin to show in June. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Keep the fields weed free as infected perennials can harbor the virus. Proper tillage practices may be helpful in managing the disease. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. Spraying the tomato plants with mineral oil can delay the aphids from spreading the virus.The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

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.

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!

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.
