30 seeds, organic

 

Lemon cucumbers are not only round and yellow like a lemon but they even have a hint of citrus. The vines can be allowed to grow along the ground or they can also be grown on trellises to save space.

These are ready in only 60-75 days. Grow when temperatures are between 65 and 75 degrees. In warmer climates, grow in fall or winter. The cucumbers will start out a light green, turn light and then golden yellow. Pick fruits when they are just turning light yellow as overripe fruits can be bitter. Continue to harvest for more production. If some are left on the vine too long, you can use those for seeds for future plantings.

This is for 30 Organic, Non GMO seeds

A single vine can produce up to 40-50 cucumbers per plant!!

I combine shipping on all seed orders, you pay one flat fee for as many seeds as you would like for no additional shipping. Orders over $35 for any combination of items in my shop ship for free!

All of my seeds are tested and guaranteed. Most of my seeds are fresh off of my own plants. Please see below for detailed planting instructions. There is also a printable version that is the very last photo in the listing. You can simply print it by pressing and holding CTRL and then P, to create a screen print for reference.

Plant when temperatures are between 70 and 85 degrees. Choose a location that receives full sun. Prepare a bed by clearing an area of weeds and digging down a few inches to loosen the soil. Replace the soil with organic compost, garden soil or a mixture of both. It is really important that these grow in nutrient rich soil. Thoroughly wet the soil before planting. Plant the seeds ½ inch deep in groups of three that are 2 feet apart, in rows that are 3 feet apart. Water daily until they sprout and then water as needed. These are ready for harvest when they turn deep yellow and develop stripes at about 65 days for the initial harvest. Continue to harvest to encourage more production. Always be sure to cut the cucumbers from the vines rather than pulling.

You can trellis these, which takes up much less space in your garden and helps to prevent disease that can be caused by having the leaves in constant contact with the soil. You can also use those towers that are designed for growing peas. You will want something strong as the cucumbers are heavy. I live in a very humid climate and kept having problems with powdery mildew with all cucumbers in general, until I started trellising them. You may want to try this if you are in a humid climate as well. Some people have no problems just allowing them to ramble across the ground.

A NOTE ON SEED STORAGE:

If your temperatures are not quite right for planting, you can keep the seeds viable by keeping them in the plastic bag that I send them in (which is thick and food grade for specifically this purpose,) place that in a paper bag to block light and put it in your refrigerator until you are ready to plant. This can be done with most all seeds and will keep them viable for 1-5 years depending on the species. If you have a basement, you can store them there as well. A sealed mason jar in a paper bag is also ideal. They key for seed storage is cool, dark and dry.
