Cucumber 'Sweet And Striped'
Our sweetest cucumber that can grow to 1 metre long. Elegantly curled, ribbed and striped. Prefers to grow naturally along the ground rather than up a trellis. Burp free. Yields roughly 12 fruit per plant.
Cucumbers need a rich soil that does not dry out, and has a pH of above 6.5. Seeds sprout readily at soil temperatures of 20 degrees. Cucumbers usually thrive when grown up a trellis or teepee, however this may reduce yield in this variety. Choose a well ventilated, sunny spot for your cucumbers, as they are prone to moulds and mildew in humid, still weather. Pick your cucumbers regularly as soon as they are an edible size to encourage new flowers and fruit.
