CUCUMBER – SIBERIAN

Cucumis sativus

This is a really hardy variety, that was originally brought over from Russia. It has excellent disease, pest & frost resistance, yet can handle scorching summers as well. Never gets curly rot, very resistant to powdery mildew holding out much longer than most standard green types & is very fruit fly & cucumber fly resistant. Great fresh in salads as it’s also a burpless and low acid variety. Equally good pickled. Doesn’t need trellising to grow uniform straight fruit, & produces bumper crops. Handles the cold as well as it handles tropical conditions.

Sow seeds direct into well-prepared beds or pots with added compost. Soil must be 20°C or above for best germination results. Press 4 seeds into a hole and then later to 2 seedlings.
