Planting Instructions for National Pickling Improved Cucumber Seeds

National Pickling Improved cucumbers are heat loving, frost sensitive vines. Plant heirloom cucumber seeds in full sun, ½ – ¾” deep, in 1′ diameter hills of 4-6 seeds each, 3-4′ apart. Germination occurs in 4-13 days in soil 70-95°F. Thin to 1-2 plants per hill. In short season climates you can start cucumber seeds indoors 3 weeks before last frost, in individual peat pots at least 3½” across. Harden off cucumbers plants for 1 week before setting out. Harvest regularly for continuous production, making sure to pick overripe cucumbers that were missed. Heirloom slicing cucumbers are best when uniformly green, firm and crisp. For pickles harvest cucumbers when 2-6″ according to preference.

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
