A BURPLESS variety that should be tried in every garden! Fruits are very smooth and sweet. Skin is not bitter; entire fruit can be eaten without peeling. These heavy yielders should be picked when 3 to 5 inches long.
In full sun, sow 5 seeds over a hill 12 inches tall and 2 feet across with well-drained soil. For smaller gardens, plant alongside fence or trellis. When plants are 2 inches tall, thin to 3 plants per hill. Plant at 3-week intervals up to midsummer for fresh cucumbers all season. Keep fruits picked.
Plant cucumber seed only after all danger of frost is past and ground is warm. They need lots of sunshine and water. Keep weeds to a minimum with straw or leaf mulch.
Ferry-Morse seeds have been sold continuously since 1856 and are guaranteed to grow.
