Description

Vining plants resist downy and powdery mildew

Days to Maturity: 55 from direct sow

Burpless cucumbers with delectable flavor and huge yields are almost unheard-of, but that's what Garden Sweet brings to the table. This vigorous vining plant delivers armloads of the most delicious cukes you will ever eat, all entirely bitter- and burp-free.

The fruit reaches 10 to 12 inches long, slender and cylindrical, with faint stripes on the necks and a deep green, smooth, thin skin. Perfect for slicing, Garden Sweet Burpless gives you an extra bite in every cuke.

This plant resists downy and powdery mildew, which certainly contributes to its generous yields over a long season. It is easy to grow; simply direct sow the seeds in spring after the soil has warmed, or begin them indoors 4 weeks before last frost. Work the soil well, amending it with organics so that it is rich and consistently moist. Then set 3 or 4 plants on each hill, mulch them in well, and keep them watered and fed throughout the growing season. You can pick the cukes smaller if desired. It's that simple.

I had ordered these seeds last year but didn't plant them as I decided to try another cuke I purchased somewhere else instead. After those failed in two plantings I put these in at the end of June and they did very nicely, producing well into the fall. They won't win any beauty contests, often not being the nice, straight specimens you see at the grocery store, but once they were done for the year I sure missed them in my salads-- they were a crisp with a smooth fresh taste. This year they are getting planted first!

Fantastic performer, and a space saver. I trained six or seven plants to grow up a cage made from cement reinforcing mesh. Extreme heat didn't slow them down at all, although they needed daily watering when the temperatures were in the 90s (twice daily in the 100s). I picked the cukes smaller, around 5", and anywhere from two to five a day at peak production. Sweet and crunchy, and don't need peeling. It's almost the end of September, and they are still going.

This is our first year growing this one and it will be in our garden from now on. It makes great pickles and the production from a few plants has been all we can do to keep up with it. It is now mid August and it doesn't seem to be slowing at all from the heat and is going strong while others struggle.
