Lemon Cucumber

CUCUMBER Lemon


An exceptionally nice variety for cool short season climates. The fruit looks like a round lemon, instead of a cucumber. A sweet flavored variety that is ideal to use in salads or relishes. 65 to 70 days till maturity.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: For early plants start indoors in pots. Or seed directly into garden after all danger of frost has passed and weather has warmed.

SPACING: In rows, leave 8 inches between plants; space rows 3 feet apart. Or place 6 to 8 seeds in hills that are spaced 4 to 5 feet apart.

GERMINATION: Approx. one week in 70 degrees F temperatures; up to 2 weeks in cooler weather. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Rich, well-drained soil is best for cucumbers. Excellent soil additive: processed manure or compost. Harvest when golf ball size for best texture and flavor, when fruit is paler and not as bright yellow as pictured on front of packet.
