Botanical Name: Cucumis sativus
An excellent, sweet tasting, burpless variety. The fruits can be eaten whole or sliced but are best when picked up to 10cm (4in) long. Cucumbers do best in a well prepared soil with added fertiliser.
We hope you enjoy these cucumber seeds, just another great example of vegetables seeds from Mr Fothergill's!
How To Grow
Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4-5 seeds in clumps, later thin to two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. At 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out growing tips to encourage side shoots. Keep well watered and prepare the soil with organic material and or complete fertiliser.
