Cucumbers

Plant about 12 inches apart or in hills of 3-4 plants as they will vine all over the place.  Succession plantings will ensure a continuous supply.  Harvest when they are size you are looking for.  For pickles harvest smaller and for eating you can wait a little.

Very tender, will not survive frost. Pick frequently for best production. Using compost in conjunction with row covers (rather than either alone) increased cucumber yields at the University of Michigan (courtesy of Fedco Seed Catalog).

Adam Gherkin Early, heavy yields of gherkin-type fruit for pickling. Fruit possesses a full, even shape with minimal tapering at a small size. Dense, crisp flesh and characteristic bumpy skin are most pronounced when young and help maintain crispness in pickling.

Diva Diva produces distinctly tender, crisp, sweet, bitter-free, and seedless cukes. Plants are gynoecious (all-female) and parthenocarpic (grow fruits without pollination). Foliage is nonbitter, hence not as attractive to cucumber beetles as some varieties. Adapted to open field production and protected cropping. AAS winner.

General Lee Although the Confederate general fell a little short, this General continues to conquer some Yankee gardeners and farmers. High yields of uniform straight dark-green white-spined 8–8-1/2″ slicers don’t peter out in the halcyon days of summer. Doesn’t develop yellow “bellies” and retains that good Sweet Salad flavor.Note: This item is grown to order only!

Green Finger Thin, tender skin, crisp flesh and a small seed cavity. Green Finger blew away hybrids in our trials for quality and yield. Unusually durable for this type; no wrapping needed!

Lemon Beloved by salad chefs and backyard gardeners alike for its heavy yields of rounded 3″ fruits shaped somewhat like lemons. Color evolves from pale greenish yellow (immature though preferred by some customers as most tender and least seedy) to lemon yellow (best eating stage for most) to golden yellow (full maturity and seed production).Very crisp and sweet; never gets bitter and one of the best for eating right out of the garden.Note: This item is grown to order only!

Lisboa Performs in the greenhouse, high tunnel or in the field. We are really excited about this multipurpose hybrid cucumber. Lisboa is a parthenocarpic slicer cucumber, meaning it will set fruit without pollination. It can be grown in the greenhouse or in a high tunnel and it also sets extra early in the field.

Painted Serpent Also known as Armenian Cucumber or Snake Melon, William Woys Weaver says “this is one of the oldest of our heirlooms, yet one of the most neglected by our gardeners,” oft exhibited but seldom eaten. Yet its flavor surpasses that of cucumbers, excelling in salads and stir fries without bitterness or burps. Slender slightly fuzzy flexuous fruits delicately coil like a serpent with alternate light and dark green stripes.Note: This item is grown to order only!
