Cucumber - Straight Eight - Cucumis sativus

Tender Annual Heirloom. Straight Eight is a smooth, straight cucumber up to 8" long with rounded, blunt ends and deep-green skin. It is mosaic-tolerant and free from stippling. This cucumber is vigorous, early, prolific, and of excellent quality for home use. A 1935 All-American Selections winner.

Soil & Water: Plant cucumbers in hills or mounds with plenty of added organic matter. Sow 6-7 seeds in a hill, thinning to the 3 best vines.

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. 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.
