Lemon-like in color, size and shape, the True Lemon Cucumber's white flesh is sweet with a superb crunch.
Easy to digest, skin and all. Neither flesh nor skin is bitter, and itís versatile enough for slicing, pickling, and snacking. Introduced from Australian markets in Samuel Wilson's 1894 catalog (Mechanicsburg, PA).
Approx 35 seeds per pack
Outdoor Sowing Recommended.
Plant 6 to 8 seeds per hill (4ft. to 6ft. apart) directly in the garden after soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. When seedlings are 6" tall, select the 3 strongest and pinch or cut out the others. Do not pull, as this disturbs the root structure.
Cucumbers need moisture. Mulch thickly and water well in dry weather. Plant where vines can climb on a trellis or a fence. Pick often, cucumbers left to turn yellow will slow or stop the vine's production.
