Cucumber - Sumter - Cucumis sativus

Tender Annual Vines produce blocky, slightly tapered, medium-green cucumbers with white spines. Grows well in the north and south, for home, market or pickling.

Soil & Water: Cucumbers love rich soil that is high in organic matter and well drained. Water heavily during fruiting to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70F in a hill, thinning to the 3 best vines. Plant seeds 18" apart if trellised or 36" apart if left to sprawl.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest while small to medium-sized for best flavor. Keep harvesting fruit, even if misshapen, to keep vines productive.

Did You Know? Resistant to powdery mildew, downy mildew, angular leaf spot and scab, tolerance to cucumber mosaic virus, some resistance to anthracnose.
