Cucumber Lemon Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Cucumis sativus

Item #3099

65 days. This unusual, eye-catching lemon-sized cucumber has excellent flavor and is a great slicer or pickler. It is scrumptious eaten with the skin and all just like you would an apple. Hard to find in grocery stores. Keeps well in the refrigerator. Plants are somewhat drought tolerant.

This packet sows two 8-foot rows of trellised cucumbers.

Days to Emerge:
5-10 days

Seed Depth:
1/2"

Seed Spacing:
2 seeds every 12"

Row Spacing:
3'

Thinning:
When 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant every 12"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is warm, at least 60°F

When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost

Harvesting: Pick when cucumbers are between lemon and apple size. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat,” which increases the quality and life of picked fruit.
