HOW TO GROW

Sowing: These burpless cucumber seeds for sale do not take well to transplanting, so either start them early in peat pots or plant them directly. Start them indoors about 2 weeks before frost, placing 3-4 seeds 1/2" deep in the pot. Keep the air temperature at least 80 degrees F. When two or three leaves appear on each plant, cut off all but the strongest plant with a scissors. Before planting them, "harden" the seedlings by setting them outside during the day. They should be planted no sooner than a week after the last spring frost, when the air temperatures consistently average 65-75 degrees F. For planting them in a hill, place three seedlings or 7-8 seeds in each hill; space hills 4-5' apart. If rows are preferrable, plant seedlings 1' apart or place 5 seeds within 1' and later thin them. Burpless cucumbers love heat and cannot endure even a light frost; if cold temperatures threaten, cover the seedlings. Since cucumbers love to climb, providing a trellis will save space in your garden and produce straighter cucumbers that are easier to pick; however, the vines will simply spread out over the ground if no trellis is provided. Some gardeners plant their cucumbers with corn, since the two plants benefit each other and the cucumbers will climb the corn. Planting several radishes with cucumbers seems to repel damaging cucumber beetles; however, cucumbers do not like being planted near potatoes or aromatic herbs.

Growing: Moisture is the key to growing excellent cucumbers; keep the soil consistently moist. When the vines have developed, apply mulch or straw to conserve moisture and control weeds. Watch out for cucumber beetles, and remove them immediately to prevent damage.

Harvesting: This slender, dark green cucumber reaches a lenth of 12-14 inches and works very well for slicing. This variety is especially sweet and nearly free of acid. When the blossom end of the cucumber begins to turn yellow, this indicates that the cucumber has passed its prime. Burpless cucumbers store very well in the refrigerator.

Seed Saving: Because this variety of cucumber is a hybrid, the seed it produces will either be sterile or will revert to the characteristics to one of the parent seeds; reproducing burpless cucumber seeds for sale from their own seeds will not be successful.

DESCRIPTION

This great slicing variety is sweet, non-bitter, and nearly acid-free, making it a burpless variety. This hybrid variety of cucumber produces long slender fruits 12-14" long in about 58 days.
Historians generally agree that the first cucumbers grew in India's Himalyan Mountains over 3,000 years ago. From this region they expanded into Greece and Rome; the Romans most likely spread this vegetable to the rest of Europe. The cucumber was widely grown by native Americans through the influence of the Spanish and other explorers. Cucumbers continue to be a vital part of traditional cuisine in Russia and many parts of Asia; the greatest variety of colors and shapes of this vegetable can still be found in its Asian birthplace. Burpless cucumber seeds in particular were developed in the greenhouses of Holland.
