The "straight" slicing cucumber is not only convenient, but has great taste, too. Easy to peel, easy to slice.

"Straight 8" means the fruits will be straight, not curved, and at least 8" long. With the great taste built in, this cucumber come from the garden already ready for preparation. A home garden favorite.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow seed in the late spring when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. For earlier crop start indoors 4-6 weeks before setting out. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist, and feed monthly. Tie vines on trellis to save space.
Harvesting: Pick at any size up to 6-8"/15-20 cm. and before fruit color begins to turn yellow. Pick regularly so fruit will continue to form.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
