Description

This F1 hybrid cucumber is prolific and delicious, sweet and crunchy – with excellent texture and fabulous taste. They grow happily outside or under cover.

With these very tasty and easy varieties of cucumber, you have sweet fruit with none of the palaver of removing male flowers.

Sow your cucumbers when your broad beans are nearly over – they will fill the gap nicely.

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.
