Description

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.

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.
