Seed Savers Exchange Cucumber, Bushy
Introduced to American gardeners by SSE in 1992. Originated in Russia where its short vines (up to 5' long) and ease of growing made it perfect for dacha or second-home gardens near Moscow. Produces bumper crops for fresh eating and pickling. 45-50 days.
This crop can be direct seeded into the soil after the last spring frost. You can also start plants indoors 3-6 weeks before the last frost date.
Make sure that your soil is well fertilized as this crop is a heavy feeder and takes a lot of nutrients from the soil. Consider adding compost to the soil the year before you plant.
