Cucumber


A favorite vegetable of the famous King Charlemagne, cucumbers were grown in his gardens in the 8th and 9th century. Although the cucumber is originally from India, the crop maintains wide popularity across the world and is a significant vegetable in many cuisines. Though most notably known for use in pickling, Mountain Valley Seeds carries cucumber varieties for all sorts of summer snacking. Try the Sweeter Yet variety for salads, the Lemon cucumber for kids and the unique Armenian Yard-long for something different!

Few things smell as fresh as a cucumber in the heat of summer. But which kind of cucumber you grow depends on what you desire to use them for and the space you have. If you want to make pickles a pickling cucumber such as Boston pickling is an excellent choice. If you simply want them to slice into salads and eat fresh a slicing cucumber such as Marketmore 76 or Fanfare are great choices. Some suffer upset stomach when eating cucumbers but there is a variety for them as well, they are known as burpless cucumbers such as Orient express and Burpless #26 hybrid. Cucumbers are spreaders so if you don’t have much space to spare there are bush varieties that don’t take as much space but they produce less. Of course if you don’t want to sacrifice harvest cucumbers have been known to do very well in a window box or hanging pot. In fact burpless cucumbers should be grown on some kind of trellis or hung so that the fruit can use gravity to grow straight.

Cucumbers can be direct planted after the risk of frost has past or started indoors in peat pellets or pots 4-6 weeks before being planted outside. If started indoors be sure to harden them off by putting them outside in increasing increments for a week before planting.
