General Lee Cucumber (F1 Hybrid 66 Days)

Vigorous, long vined slicing cucumber that does well in all zones. The fruit is long and fairly narrow with white spines and an attractive mid-green color. The flavor of this gynoecious (primarily female flowers) variety is terrific & yields are high. We get many compliments on this variety. Resistance to cucumber mosaic virus, downy and powdery mildew.

 25 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 the 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 the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the 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 allow 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.

Best all around we grow

This is a hands down winner with flavor and versatility. The favorite at our produce stand it sells out first. Not as productive as a few hybrids out there such as summer dance. But it make a better pickle than the Asian type cukes and slices nicely too. They do like water and need a lot to eat. This is a very reliable plant that will produce for a long season if properly maintained. They can get somewhat bitter peels during hot dry spells, but rarely is the flesh bitter.

Great in the heat!

Living in central Texas, I plant these with my spring garden. They have done well for me through June and July and held up in the heat like no other. The leaves will droop in the day with the 100+ heat but continue to do well with night watering! Wonderful flavor and great skin, I’ve used them for refrigerator pickles when picked early. I’ve also sliced them and put in freezer bags for cucumber water.
