Cucumbers thrive in heat. Borne in the fertile mud of ancient Pakistan, cucumbers migrated hither and yon: Egyptians ate slushies of cucumbers, snow and honey at feasts. Don't start cucumbers too early, for they canít abide cold soil or weather. Sow indoors two weeks before the last frost date or direct-seed in June when nights are warm: two weeks after any danger of frost. Harvest on the small side and keep picked to promote production. Each of our cucumber selections is a star in its own right.
Average seed life: 3 years
