More Details

A friend recommended this tasty and heavy cropping variety of cucumber, and we could not believe how much just three plants produced. We were eating cucumber salad, cucumber sandwiches, cucumber soups and making delicious Swedish cucumber pickles, which I’m still enjoying now in spring. I’d never grow another standard sized cucumber, nothing can compete.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow undercover from March to be ready to go out when the frosts finish in May. Sow each seed vertically (to prevent rotting) into individual 7.5cm (3in) pots. As soon as the roots fill their first pot, if the frosts are over, plant them out 30cm (12in) apart. May also be sown direct where they are to grow from mid-May.
Care Tips These will grow well outside or in a greenhouse. They are climbers so give some support. Water well, and dig in a good lot of compost when planting out. Once cucumbers start to form, apply a liquid feed (e.g. tomato fertiliser) once a week.
Harvesting July - October. Pick regularly to encourage more fruits to form.
Cooking Notes Make soup and pickles if you have a glut.
