white wonder cucumber
story: originally grown from a seed packet from an organic seed company, the white wonder forms white, 15-20cm long oval fruits, with a lovely lemony-cucumbery flavour. though it can cope outdoors in hot summers, and enjoys a heatwave, it would do best grown with some protection. we really enjoyed tasting it for the first time.
sow: indoors in april.
requirements: Like other cucumber varieties, this would do best in a greenhouse or conservatory. full sun, and moist soil.
harvesting: for eating, pick fruits when young and firm. for seed harvesting, leave the fruit on the plant for as long as possible and be sure to let them fully ripen to yellow.
please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to first-season growers. if you order more than this, you are likely to receive just three packs to begin with. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
