Lemon Cucumber (Heirloom, 65 Days)

Heirloom originated in 1894, the 3” fruits are round, pale yellow in color, with a white flesh that is easily digested and never bitter. Yields are very abundant. 

 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 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

Here in Oregon, I have just planted the lemon cucumber seeds in my greenhouse late last week. The weather remain cool, especially at night, and quite rainy. The seeds have not germinated yet, but I will keep you aware of their progress

They grew well and there

They grew well and there were a lot of them. I didn't eat all of them even tho I just planted a 3 foot row. They did well on the trellis I grew them on. Of course they succumbed to that mildew-like disease cures get here in our hot humid summers. Over all I can recommend them . Seed viability was good. My favorite seeds of yours are the 30 day turnips. I plant them every couple of weeks and they keep us in sweet turnips most of the year!

New favorite cucumber

This variety germinated quickly and endured through a rough Maine spring. Even in less than ideal conditions, it sprawled and produced heavily. This will be part of our annual garden!
