( Seneca Longbow Cucumber )
|'Seneca Longbow' is a slicing cucumber generally ready for harvest after 62 days. These disease-resistant plants yeild 7-8 inch dark-green cukes 1.5-2 inches wide. Cucumbers are known space hogs in the garden, but can be managed quite easily if grown on a trellis. There are bush varieties that take up less space too.
Plant in full sun and maintain an even moisture level for even-sized fruit. Warm temperatures are needed for germination and pollination. With a growing season of only 55 to 65 days, it can be grown just about anywhere. Cucumbers seem to do best when night temperatures are around 60 degrees and day temperatures around 90 degrees. Plant no sooner than 3 or 4 weeks after your last average frost date. Cucumbers can tolerate partial shade and love rich soil that is high in organic matter and well drained. Be sure to plant varieties of cucumbers that are scab and mosaic resistant.
Important Info : Time from planting to harvest is about 60 days. Keep cucumbers picked, as the vine will stop producing if seeds are allowed to mature. Cucumbers do not do well where air is polluted.
