This heirloom slicing cucumber, the Straight Eight, has a smooth, cylindrical body, known for its deep-green skin and straight 8-inch fruit. The ends are rounded and blunt, free from stippling. This variety produces generous and vigorous vines that are resistant to mosaic virus.

This cucumber variety is dual-purpose as the young fruits can be pickled when small or the mature 8– to 9-inch fruits can be sliced. The taste is sweet and mild.

Straight Eight cucumbers are a crowd pleaser, and an AAS winner (1935).

How To Plant

    The Straight Eight Cucumbers should be grown in full sun, in hills, with each hill 4 to 5 feet apart. Vining cucumbers benefit from growing on a trellis, if available, as this type is a climber. Straight Eights will grow to about a foot high without trellis support.

    Cucumbers love heat and will not tolerate light frost. For northern growers or those that want to get a jump on this summer crop, sow indoors at 1-2 seeds per cell at 3-4 weeks prior to transplanting. Thin to one plant per cell when the true leaves form.
