Silver Slicer Cucumber

$3.75$4.50

54 days | This is a prolific cucumber, creamy white/pale yellow in color. Excellent flavor, crisp juicy flesh and thinned skin. I loved this one for fresh eating and making whole refrigerator pickles. Which to tell you the truth is the only way I make pickles, as refrigerator pickles. They always stay crisp and delicious! Silver Slicer grows to about 2″ wide and 6″ long. I’ve had a long love affair with this one.

Description

Cucumbers grow just fine along the ground but I love growing them up a trellis. You save massive amounts of space in the garden to plant other crops and they are just beautiful growing towards the sky.

Put your trellis in plant when planting as cucumber grow quickly once germinated and it can quickly get away from you. Use anything you have laying around to grow them up. I have used old fencing, garden trellises, and currently use old wagon wheels. Vines will need a little encouragement to begin climbing your trellis but soon will do all the work themselves.

Harvesting cucumbers that are grown vertically is a breeze. You’ll wonder why you haven’t grown them this way sooner. Long, Japanese and European cucumbers will grow nice and straight when grown vertically.
