Producing an average of 10-20 fruits per plant, cucumber varieties range from standard, like those found in grocery stores, to quirky heirloom types and compact varieties perfect for container gardens.
Types of Cucumber Seeds
Slicing cucumber seeds produce the best cucumbers for fresh eating. They generally grow at least 8-inches long and have tender skin that isn't bitter. Their flesh is sweet with only small seed cavities.
Heirloom cucumber seeds have been saved and grown for decades--even centuries! A seed is typically considered an 'heirloom' if it existed more than 50 years ago. Besides having a rich history, heirloom cucumber seeds are time-tested, guaranteed non-GMO and you can keep saving heirloom seeds each year.
Pickling cucumber seeds are a Gardens Alive! favorite and will soon be yours too! Short and stout (perfectly fit for the pickle jar), pickling cucumber varieties yield heavy crops of fruit in just a few weeks.
Cucumber Seeds for Containers
Despite their sprawling vines, cucumbers can be successfully grown in containers provided they are a compact variety and their vines are guided up a trellis. Simply use a large container like our 15-gallon Grow Tub, good soil and a trellis.
Growing your own produce is a lifelong skill that's fun and fulfilling. You'll savor each and every cool, crisp bite of your beloved cucumber crop knowing the effort that went into its unmatched flavor and nutrition. At Gardens Alive! we're committed to helping you every step of the way!
