Get the perfect slicing cucumber with absolutely straight fruits from the aptly-named Straight Eight Cucumber. Why the eight? Well, the fruits are about eight inches long and fatter than the most commonly grown commercial varieties. As an additional benefit, the vines are resistant to many of the plant diseases that afflict their more delicate cousins. Tasty and heavy-yielding, these cucumbers are a real favourite with savvy gardeners.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Start your seeds in spring. Direct sowing is the best solution, but if you want to get an early start, you can sow them in pots and plant them out after the last frost. Plant your seeds no more than 10mm deep, and keep the soil moist. Water deeply, and then let just the surface of the soil dry between waterings to keep them moist but not soggy.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest your cucumbers in the mornings when they are at their firmest and juiciest. Cut them from the vine to prevent breakage. Don't let the seeds mature, even if you have more cucumbers than you need, as that tells the plant it can stop producing.
