Delikatesse Cucumber (Heirloom, 60 Days)

3 reviews

German Heirloom. A very popular European variety and a bit different from US cukes in appearance. Fruits are about 10” long and a lovely pale – almost lime – green covered with tiny warts. Can be used as a fine slicer or a very large pickler. Abundant yields are one reason that Delikatesse has stood the test of time, great flavor is the other. 

 20 seeds


Cucumis sativus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and pick every day to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation, takes up less space and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

I recommend this product

I live in Illinois and I have not yet started these seeds. However, I have started some tomato and peppers that I purchased and germination has been great. I will update you on the cukes at the appropriate time

Pleasantly Surprised

I grow many types of cucumbers and this one seems to be the perfect mix.I direct seeded in the garden with great results. Very healthy vines and lots of fruit. Great fresh and for pickling! Grows large without a bitter taste. Great flavor. I used these for relish, pickles and salads with great results. These are my new favorites.
