Siberian Cucumber Cucumis Sativus Seeds
50+ seeds of the original style standard cucumber, just like the shop ones.
This is a really hardy variety, that was originally drought over from Russia, or so the story goes…
It has excellent disease, pest and frost resistance, yet can handle our scorching 40c+ Summers too.
Never gets curly rot, very resistant to powdery mildew holding out much longer than most standard green types and is very fruit fly and cucumber fly resistant. I really mean it when I say its a very hardy variety!
Great fresh in salads as its also a “burpless and low acid” variety.
Equally good pickled. (1cup white vinegar, 1cup water, 1teaspoon salt, teaspoon mustard seeds and a pinch of fennel, dill or huacatay.)Fantastic with a beer!
Doesn’t need trellising to grow uniform straight fruit, and produces bumper crops.
Handles the cold as well as it handles the tropical conditions up here! Got friends of ours grow them at Camberwell Vic and Cairns Qld. Can’t beat the little ones straight of the vine, crunchy sweet and delicious!
And, 50 seeds so you can stagger your plantings, A couple plants every few weeks!
Free, home grown, cucumber all year round!
Grown by us organically, no nasties, no chems, no problems!!!
