Lemon Heirloom Cucumbers are true to their name and look like bright yellow lemons, but are very different on the inside.  The 3-4 inch fruit are tender and sweet and never bitter. You can pickle them or slice them fresh in your favorite salad.  Pick by turning cucumbers parallel to the vine and snapping off with a quick snap.  This prevents vine damage.

Cucumbers are a tender, warm-season vegetable that can add a crisp cool snap to your favorite salad or sandwich.

Sizes:  #4

Days To Harvest: 65 days from seed.

Spacing: Plant 18″ apart in 60″ rows.

Height: Grows 6″ to 8″ tall.

How To Grow: Plant in full sun.

Outstanding Features: Cucumbers are very easy to grow.  Pick when fairly young to avoid bitter skin.  Although the cucumber has a higher water content than most vegetables, you can increase its nutritional value by serving without peeling it first.

Tips: When the cucumbers mature and are ready to be picked, picking them regularly instead of leaving them on the vine will keep them producing new cucumbers longer.  Harvest cucumbers in the early morning and they will be more crisp.
