Cucumber, Sumpter Pickling

  • $4.00

Description

Cucumis sativus

Webstore Exclusive

The most popular pickling cucumber.  

Sumpter produces symmetrical 5-6" cucumbers with an attractive color and firm, tender flesh. With its strong, disease-resistant vines and very good yields, Sumter is the ideal choice for gardeners who want to pickle cucumbers and enjoy their harvest throughout the season. 

It's a good idea to use a trellis system for growing cucumbers, as it will train the vines to grow vertically, saving valuable garden space. A trellis or cage will also keep the fruit off the ground and encourage good airflow for healthy plants and fruit.

Seeds grown by Rich Felton in Rawlins, Wyoming.

30 seeds.

Directions: Direct sow after danger of frost has passed and soil is consistently warm, or start indoors 3-4 weeks early and transplant. Thin to 12" spacing. Provide a trellis.
