Product Overview

Cucumis sativus var. sativus

Enjoy sweet, delicious English cucumbers at teatime, dinnertime, or any time! Long, slender, burpless fruits have thin, tender skin, few seeds, and are never bitter.

The English cucumber is longer (up to 18") and thinner than traditional cucumbers, with very small, soft seeds. 'Telegraph Improved' was developed in the 1800s for growing in greenhouses, but is now a favorite of home gardeners for the long, thin-skinned, burpless fruits that add a cool, mild flavor and a snappy crunch to salads and sandwiches. Cucumbers develop best when grown on a trellis and get regular moisture while fruits are forming.

Variety Info

10"–18" long, skinny, dark green fruits with sweet flesh. Vines can be up to 8' long.

Sowing Inside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Cucumbers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°–90°F.
