Even though cucumbers might be the most quintessential garden crop, they still afford plenty to get excited about. Our collection of cukes ranges from green to white, from serpentine to spherical, from salads to pickles and every stop in between. Whichever variety you choose, don't let the opportunity pass you by to take a thirst-quenching bite straight out of the garden on a hot midsummer day. Cucumbers prefer full sun and well-draining soil, and they can be either direct sown or transplanted successively throughout the season. The rangy vining plants can also be trellised.
