Description

Burpless cucumbers with delectable flavor and huge yields are almost unheard-of, but that’s what Garden Sweet brings to the table! This vigorous vining plant delivers armloads of the most delicious cukes you will ever eat, all entirely bitter- and burp-free! The fruit reaches 10 to 12 inches long, slender and cylindrical, with faint stripes on the necks and a deep green, smooth, thin skin. Perfect for slicing, Garden Sweet Burpless gives you an extra bite in every cuke! This plant resists downy and powdery mildew, which certainly contributes to its generous yields over a long season. It is easy to grow; simply direct-sow the seeds in spring after the soil has warmed, or begin them indoors 4 weeks before last frost. Work the soil well, amending it with organics so that it is rich and consistently moist. Then set 3 or 4 plants on each hill, mulch them in well, and keep them watered and fed throughout the growing season. You can pick the cukes smaller if desired. It’s that simple!
