Welcome to Ferry-Morse Home Gardening!
A great slicing cucumber, these perfectly straight garden favorites have thick, sweet, mild flesh with excellent flavor that makes this a superb choice for salads or for dipping.
If picked when they are small, these cukes are good for pickling, too. Defined as an heirloom cucumber because home gardeners keep on growing this old favorite for its large, flavorful fruits!
Sweet, mild taste.
Use in salads, for dipping, or for pickling.

Days to Maturity:
In full sun, sow a few seeds over a hill 12 inches tall and 2 feet across with well-drained soil. For smaller gardens, plant alongside a fence or trellis. When plants are 2 inches tall, thin to 3 plants per hill. Plant at 3 week intervals up to midsummer for fresh cucumbers all season. Keep fruits picked.
Plant cucumber seeds only after all danger of frost is past and the ground is warm. They need lots of sunshine and water. Keep weeds to a minimum with a straw or leaf mulch.
