gourd family, cucurbit family Cucumis sativus

Long Zurich Cucumber

The name says it all. This strong and hearty variety grows well and produces a considerable crop. Its long dark green cucumbers are roughly 30–40 cm long, crispy, and have a delicate flavour. It gives a taste of traditional vegetables from Zurich.

Sow beginning in mid-April with 2 seeds each in an 8-cell starter tray for transplants or from mid-May direct seeded in the field. Plant with a spacing of 50 ✕ 50 cm in nutrient-rich soil. Compost and mulch cover are recommended since they give such a benefit. Intercrop with lettuce, turnip, kohlrabi or radish to maximize garden space.
