Summer Dance Cucumber (F1 Hybrid, 70 Days)

32 reviews

An elongated Japanese type cucumber, Summer Dance is notable in that every one of the fruit seems perfect. It is 10” long, 1” wide with a deep green color and smooth skin. Very vigorous grower, setting many lateral vines for high productivity. Resistant to both powdery and downy mildew. Flavor is sweet, mild, and refreshing, no need to peel. 

 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.

Summer Dance cucumbers

excellent. Very prolific. Beautiful long, thin, crisp, flavorful cucumbers. Great for salads or for pickling (I made bread and butter pickles with my first large harvest).

Summer Dance cucumber seeds

Very good. We received our seeds quickly and every one of the seeds I planted germinated. I would definitely order from Pinetree again. The summer dance cucumbers were good, but they didn't produce as much as the other type of cucumber we planted in our earth boxes. I think it might be because this summer has been so unusually hot and dry.

This will be my forever cucumber!

This is a great cucumber! Long and very tasty. Isn’t bitter. Seems to grow fast, too. I’ll order these seeds every year! Joan in Colorado.
