CU412A - Excelsior Organic
Excelsior organic cucumber seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! This is an outstanding pickling variety for full season production and home gardening. Plants are open and have a vigorous habit with medium to dark-green fruits averaging 10-12cm (4-5") in length. Excelsior is a parthenocarpic variety with high resistance to Cornyspora and scab, with intermediate resistance to powdery mildew, cucumber mosaic virus, and vein yellowing virus. Try it at home for high tunnel growing. Keep Excelsior cucumber plants picked, and they will reward you with buckets of cucumbers, the perfect size and shape for making dill pickles. We did a comparison trial with Excelsior grown in a greenhouse and outdoors. The plants in the greenhouse started producing two weeks earlier, but they did not produce more fruits.
