Lemon Cucumber Heirloom is a non-GMO variety of cucumber known for its unique, tangy lemon flavor.
These cucumbers are a great addition to salads, sandwiches, and drinks, giving them a refreshing twist.
The cucumbers are oblong and have a light green, smooth skin.
To germinate Lemon Cucumber Heirloom seeds, start by filling a seed tray or pots with seed compost.
Place the seeds on top of the compost and cover them with a layer of compost or vermiculite.
Water the seeds well and place the tray or pots in a propagator or cover them with a plastic bag to maintain a warm, humid environment.
Keep the tray or pots in a warm place, ideally at a temperature of around 68-86°F (20-30°C), until the seeds germinate.
This usually takes around 7 to 10 days.
Once the seedlings have germinated and grown their first true leaves, they can be transplanted into 7-9 inch pots.
Once all danger of frost has passed, and soil temperature are at least 60F, they can be planted outside.
When transplanting them, space them 12 to 18 inches apart in a sunny spot with well-draining soil.
Lemon Cucumber Heirloom plants prefer a consistently moist soil and regular fertilization.
They benefit from a support structure such as a trellis or fence, where they can cling to as they grow.
They should be harvested when they are around 6 to 8 inches long, and before the seeds inside begin to mature.
Overall, Lemon Cucumber Heirloom is an easy-to-grow variety of cucumber that adds a unique, tangy flavor to meals and drinks.
With the proper care, these plants will produce bountiful crops of flavorful cucumbers all summer long.
