Pepinex English Greenhouse Cucumber

60-70 days. Pepinex is a seedless continental or English-type variety that abundantly produces long, slender, straight, slightly ribbed, high quality Cucumbers reserved for the best vegetable markets with a very expensive price tag. Grow Pepinex's disease-resistant vines (powdery mildew, leaf spot and gummosis) on a supportive trellis to keep the fruits long and straight. Pepinex has a great flavor without any of the bitterness of a normal Cucumber. Its paper-thin skin need not even be peeled. (F1.)

Warmth-loving Cucumbers may be grown as transplants, sown indoors 2 weeks before the last spring frost date, or direct-sown well after all threat of frost has passed and when the soil has warmed up to 50°F. Harvest with a sharp blade regularly to promote abundant production before seed cavities swell, when the Cucumbers are small and thin-skinned. Cucumber vines creep stealthily, so take care to avoid garden traffic jams. They are successfully trellised vertically thanks to prolific spiraling tendrils. Some varieties are parthenocarpic and seedless, meaning pollination is unnecessary, while most have seeds and require pollination for flower and fruit development. About 90% water, Cucumbers are rich in Vitamin C, beta-carotene and manganese, and yield antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. We love Renny Darling's Cucumber and Chive Soup with Lemon and Dill and our Asian-inspired Refreshing Cucumber Salad. It's fun to slice off the ends and hollow them out as little cups for cold Cucumber soup. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 3 years.
