Eureka Hybrid Cucumber Seeds

(P) Pkt of 30 seeds
Item #05569-PK-P1


The most disease resistant cucumber in the world today

Days to Maturity: 57 from direct sow

The most disease resistant cuke ever grown is also uniquely versatile. Unlike most varieties, which are grown specifically for use in pickling or in fresh eating, Eureka can do both—deliciously.

This dark-green, white-spined, firm cucumber reaches anywhere from 1½ to 5 inches long, depending on how young you want to pick it. Harvest the fruit early for pickling and it will make the darkest green batch of pickles you ever saw. Let it grow on a bit and it's a fabulous fresh slicer for salads and snacks. How nice to find a cucumber that meets all your needs.

Eureka's package of disease resistance is almost unbelievable. This little cuke is resistant to angular leaf spot, downy mildew, papaya ring spot, scab, watermelon mosaic virus, zucchini yellow virus, anthracnose races 1 and 2, cucumber mosaic virus, and powdery mildew. If you've ever had problems with diseases on your cuke crops, switch to Eureka and find out how easy this vegetable really can be to grow.

Direct sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly. Eureka reaches 4 to 6 feet high and 2 feet wide.

Great cucumbers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I like the blocky style of these cucumbers - they are fine for eating fresh or for pickling. Raise them just about every year.

Perfect for greenhouses

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This variety of cucumber is perfect for our greenhouse. They are self pollinating, and powdery mildew resistant. I have picked them at 3-4 inches to pickle, or let them grow be slicing cucumbers. They are not bitter at all!

Did great up until the really hot months

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Great producer. Very crisp. Did not make pickles but seems like a good choice. Even in hot, humid, coastal GA no problems with powdery mildew. Did succumb along with everything else to pest insects, but I am reluctant to use insecticides.

Great cuke

Grew fast, lots of cukes, mildew at the end of the season, will grow again this year.
