Description
Straight Eight Cucumber Seeds Heirloom Non GMO

The standard for slicing cucumbers since 1935.
Bears a prolific crop of cucumbers with dark green skin
and white flesh; stays crisp and resists disease.
They have a mildly sweet flavor and are
about eight inches long at maturity.
Slicing cucumbers are perfect for making sweet bread
and butter pickles or dill pickles.
Pickles aren't the only purpose for cucumbers.
They're great when eaten fresh or in salads.
A popular heirloom type of slicing cucumbers.


Approximately 100 seeds per pack.


Days To Maturity: (55-65 days) Open Pollinated.

Planting:
Cucumbers should be planted in late spring 
(this allows time for the ground to
warm up, which is vital to cucumbers) ,
and can either be seeded directly
in the ground or started indoors. 
If you choose to start them indoors,
plant them in pots filled with
potting soil and allow yourself 
at least five weeks before
you want to plant them.
If you choose to plant
them directly in the ground,
they can be planted in rows at about
24 inches between each seed 
or planted in hills
( four to six seeds per plateau shaped hill,
with four to five feet between each hill).


How To Harvest Straight Eight Cucumber Heirloom Seeds

Allow the cucumber to mature about five weeks
beyond when the vegetable would
normally be harvested. 
This allows the seeds to mature.
By this point, the cucumber will
be much longer than normal
and usually yellow or golden in color.
The plants will stop setting fruit
as the cucumbers mature. 
If a frost occurs before the cucumber is mature,
the cucumber should be picked from the vine
and allowed to ripen in a cool dry place.
Slice the fruit from end to end.
With the fruit open, scrape out the seeds
and associated fruit with a spoon
and place it in a container.
Stir the mixture every day.
In a few days, the pieces of cucumber
mixed with the seeds will dissolve away.
The good seeds will sink to the bottom
of the container while
immature seeds will rise to the top.
Reward Points 2 points will be rewarded to you when you buy this item.

I trust Orchard House to buy my seeds from every year. Great prices, quality seeds, fast shipping and great customer service. I haven't planted these yet, it's only Febr. but I'm sure they will produce loads of cukes.
