Long, slender cucumbers are a treat to eat fresh. Ribbed skin, burpless flesh, and a delicate flavor makes these so much fun to grow. Direct sow seed into warm soil after danger of frost has past. 62 days to harvest. Repeat sow in a month for a second crop. We always grow our cucumber seeds under floating row covers and remove it only when the vines begin to flower. This give the plants a strong start by preventing damage from the striped cucumber beetle. Remember, cucumbers love water!
