Cucumber Homemade Pickles Organic Seeds

Cucumis sativus

Item #3135

55 days. Making pickles at home is easy with Homemade Pickles. This plant has excellent disease resistance, very high yields, and is ready to harvest early. The 4' compact vines produce cucumbers for quite a long period; harvest anywhere from 1 1/2"–5" long. Perfect interior texture for pickles, but can also be eaten fresh. Excellent container variety.

This packet sows two 10-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: Do not let cucumbers get too big - plants stop producing if there are overly mature cucumbers on the vine. Pick regularly at 1½" to 5" long. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat”; this increases quality and life of picked fruit.
