Cucumbers are most often used raw and are perfect in salads. Some chefs prefer to peel the skin off the fruit as it can be bitter.
Cucumbers pair well with mint an dill, which can be added directly to your salad or to dressings. Cucumber and mint can also be added to smoothies and juice. Tatziki sauce is made from shredded cucumber, yogurt, and dill.
Pickling cucumbers, however, are best for preserving in a solution of vinegar, salt, sugar, spices, and water. You can create countless number of combinations for your pickles to use on sandwiches, as a relish, or eaten as side dish.
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after the last frost when soil is warm. Space hills 6' apart in all directions.

Ratings & Reviews
I was amazed at how well this variety produced in my garden...will plant again!
One seed in the packet.
Just received my seeds that I have ordered: Bushy and Parade Cucumbers and the Black Crim tomatoes. Opened the cucumber packets to start the seeds indoors for the fall as here in Texas it is too hot to start them outside rite now. The tomatoes and the Bushy seeds are there. But! In the Parade packet there is literally ONE seed. I have not dealt with this before and think this must be a mistake. I have ordered seeds from SSE before and from time to time there were issues like I had seeds that would not do too good, but I have never had missing seeds.
N.D.--please contact us directly via email@example.com or by using the contact us form on our website. As the majority of our seed packets are packed by hand, accidents can happen. We do correct those errors immediately when notified directly. I am happy to send you a full packet, however you will need to contact us with your account and order information.
I wrote a review earlier that I received just one seed in a packet and I am very pleased that I got almost an immediate response from Jody that they would replace the seeds. They arrived promptly and look great! Can't wait to try them!
**I am VERY glad that you got them!!! Happy Planting!! Please let me know how they did for you and send photos!!
