Cucumber Seeds

Grow Cucumber Seeds for Fresh Produce at Home

Sliced, pickled or pulled right off the vine, you'll enjoy the unmistakable flavor of cucumbers! Cucumbers are so easy to grow. You can plant your cucumber seeds on hills, in rows, up trellises or in containers. Choose bush varieties if you have a smaller garden or are planting your seeds for cucumbers in a pot.

Here at Park Seed, we carry a large variety of Kirby cucumber seeds, perfect for making pickles. When we say cucumber, that means we have something for everyone. We have different sizes and colors, from tiny gherkins to long, tasty slicers (some are burpless, meaning they’re less bitter and come with fewer burp-causing compounds). Whether you plan on making dill pickles, bread and butter pickles or sweet gherkins, we have the right variety of pickle seeds for you. Your pickles can lay on the ground, but for less pest damage and cleaner cucumbers, train the vines on a trellis or cage. Whether large or small, your garden will soon be "cool as a cucumber.”

For a special treat, you should try our cucamelons. These are actually neither cucumbers nor melons. This is a plant that was grown by the Aztecs and is a true heirloom plant. In more recent history, this small fruit has been growing in popularity. Only about one inch long, the cucamelon looks like a miniature watermelon, but the taste is a combination of cucumber and lemon. It is a great snack fresh off the vine, but it can also be canned like a pickle and enjoyed year round. Plant cucamelon seeds just like you would cucumber seeds. Just remember that cucamelons don’t like to lie on the ground, so use a trellis or cage. They only grow about four feet tall but are terrific producers all season long. Make space for this plant in your garden for a very unique taste experience.
