Heirloom Lemon Cucumber Seeds, Open Pollinated, Non-GMO
Over 20 seeds per package.

Don't be fooled by this heirloom's unusual shape-these bright yellow balls are excellent for salads and pickling.

They have a clean, crisp taste and are never bitter. Normal-sized vines yield heavily and for a long time.

Round and yellow, this tennis ball-sized cucumber is a perfect serving for one or two people.
It is believed to have been introduced to the US in the late 1800s. Lemon cucumber does not have a lemon taste, only color, but has a thin, tender skin with a flavor a little milder than regular cucumbers.

Harvest, when fruit is yellow.

• Sow in directly in the garden in fertile, warm soil after danger of frost has passed. Cucumber seeds will not germinate in soil colder than 60 degrees.
• Sow seeds 3 inches apart in groups of 4-6. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil.
• Space groups 19 to 26 inches apart each way.
• Keep evenly moist.
• Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.
• Thin to 3 or 4 strongest seedlings in each group when they are 1-2 inches high.
• Pick them at golf ball size for best texture and flavor, or wait and pick them at full size.

They do well on a trellis. The leaves are more pointed than a regular cucumber. The leaf shape is similar to English ivy but larger.
