Crispy and refreshing, large and small, for pickling and eating, our favorite cukes!
Very productive and tasty baby cucumber, considered one of the best for pickling.
Space saving plants have three to four-inch-long smooth fruits with a small seed cavity. Pick at the two-inch stage for sweet gherkins. If you keep picking, they'll keep producing. Grow in a cage or on a trellis for straighter fruit.
Has the color, size and shape of a lemon, but not the flavor!
Super sweet, crisp, thin skinned (no peeling needed) and non-bitter, the thick white flesh is great for eating fresh or pickling.
Matures well in cool climates.
Originating in India in the 16th century, the lemon cucumber appeared in America after 1894.
Pick and enjoy when they're just starting to turn yellow.
Cornell University developed Marketmore 76 in 1968, and it became the slicing cucumber standard. Prized for its excellent flavor. Long, smooth and slender, dark green cucumbers with a sweet flavor and tender texture. Straight growth and thin, dark green skin. Late maturing but comes on strong in the middle of summer, for a long harvest period. Pick at six to eight inches long.
New this year! Crisp and delicious, with a seedless, juicy interior and skin that doesn’t require peeling. Best harvested when only 3–4 inches long. Vigorous, productive plants set fruit even in cool conditions. Long vines with minimal branching make Mini Munch an excellent candidate for trellising. Also a good cucumber for containers.
Salt & Pepper
New this year! Its white skin and black spines were the inspiration for the name "Salt and Pepper.” Excellent flavor and crisp texture for both pickling and snacking. Harvest when skin just starts to turn yellow. Locally adapted to our climate, seeds are from Whidbey Island’s Deep Harvest Farm. Developed at Cornell for powdery mildew resistance and success in organic gardens, Salt and Pepper won the 2011 Green Thumb Award.
Suhyo Long Slicer
An heirloom from northern China, Suhyo Long is prized for its crisp texture, few seeds, and ‘burpless’ sweet mild flavor. Ribbed fruits can grow to 18 inches long; begin harvesting at 10-12 inches. Trellis for straight fruit and to overcome its natural tendency to curl. Perfect for eating fresh or pickling.
