Easy and prolific - great home garden cucumber
Sep 13, 2015 | By Rebecca
This summer was our first serious attempt at gardening after moving from northern CA to western MT 3 years ago. Back in the SF Bay area we grew most of the usual things - tomatoes, basil, cilantro, etc. - with regular success, but I could never coax the cucumbers to produce fruits from their few flowers before the winter rains set in and they succumbed to wilt. However, THIS cucumber gets right down to business! And I was very late in setting the seeds out, getting them in the ground in mid-June. I threw in exactly 3 seeds, within a foot of 3 scarlet runner beans, and left them to their fate without great expectation. All 3 sprouted and eagerly began competing with the runner bean vine for acreage on the spindly 3'-high pole trellis I left to them. So now here it is, early September, and I'm getting a 8-10" cuke every 5 days, with evidence of many, many more to come until we get our first frost. While it's true that we have had an extensive - and dry - summer this year, I am still very impressed with this vegetable and recommend it highly - especially those who, like myself, have struggled for years to get a return on their garden cucumber investment.
