These cucumbers are featured in the latest issue of Mother Earth News feature article by William Woys Weaver. They are an old heirloom from the Boothsbay Harbor region of Maine .
They are wonderful on a trellis and hold up well for a marketing cucumber at farmers markets .They are a beautiful white to slightly cream- colored as they age on the vine . We use them as well as the lemon cucumbers for pickles as well as summer salads .
They are not as affected by powdery mildew as other cucumbers . We have grown them for many years here in our gardens .
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
