More Information


Product description

We feel this F1 hybrid is the finest slicing and salad cucumber we have ever seen. Icy crisp - extra firm fruits have tender - thin - smooth skin with no trace of bitterness. Seed cavity is very small. Fruits are best when 9 to 11 inches long. The keeping quality of Green Ice Cucumbers tops all we have ever seen - cukes retain their icy crispness and firmness up to three weeks or longer in the fridge - even after being partially used. Fruit is of the finest quality and unlike most cukes the quality remains good throughout the season. Green Ice Cucumber yields are tremendous. Strong - vigorous vines are natural climbers ideal for trellising. Mature in 48 days.This cucumber is also available in the Slicing Cucumber Collections. 1 packet of each and 1 Jumbo packet of each.Planting guide.
