Botanical Name: Cucumis sativus
A superb variety, producing many straight and exceptionally flavoured cucumbers. It will grow in any sunny open spot protected from the winds and is particularly suitable for raising in large pots on balconies and patios. Cucumbers do best in a well prepared soil with added fertiliser.
|How To Grow
Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4-5 seeds in clumps, later thin to two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. At 5 or 6 leaves pinch out the growing tips to encourage side shoots. Keep well watered and prepare the soil with organic material and or complete fertiliser.
