Silver Slicer Cucumber Seed Pack
Great slicer with a creamy-white thin skin and long, straight, uniform 6-8" fruits. This cucumber has a superb juicy, sweet, and mild taste and good crunch, and has been winning tasters over since its introduction.
-Start indoors 3 weeks before last frost and transplant to indicated spacing after threat of frost has passed. Or, direct sow seeds spaced 4" apart after last frost, then thin to indicated spacing once seedlings put on their first true leaves. Plant in moderately fertile soil and water regularly. Cucumbers can be trellised or allowed to grow on the ground. Harvest when fruits are green and white and the skin begins to smoothen, but before they become shiny and yellow.
-Days to germination: 3-7 days. Days to maturity: 60 days
