Product Description

An heirloom slicing cucumber introduced in 1935, Straight Eight is very vigorous and productive. This older open-pollinated variety is still around, because it is simply a great variety! It has great taste, is wonderful sliced on sandwiches or in salads, and is even good for making dill pickles when picked young. The mature fruit is cylindrical and 8"long. An All America Selections Winner.

    Organic variety of a productive cuke

    Posted by Catherine on Oct 18th 2020

    This is an heirloom variety of Straight Eight with many decades of service (i.e., since 1935). The seed packet recommends sowing 2 seeds every 12" and setting the rows 36" apart. It is helpful to me to read that a single packet will sow up to 22 feet of trellised cucumbers. This will be a school project. Surely the children will be fascinated by the growing habit of this vegetable and will enjoy eating the cucumbers even more!
