Plant Summer Dance in your garden and produce the most uniform Cucumbers ever! This high yielding Japanese Cucumber has a sweet crisp flavour and is burpless. Ideally planted on trellis for ideal production. Glossy deep green colour on 22 cm (10 in) long cukes with a diameter of 3 cm (1.5 in). Average weight is 100 grams (4 ozs).
Seed outdoors as soon as danger of frost has past in your area. Cover seed lightly with soil, 3 – 4 seeds together in groups. Space groupings 120 cm (4 ft) apart. For earlier Cucumbers start indoors 2 to 3 weeks in advance of intended date for moving the plants to the garden. Use Jiffy pots so the container and roots can be buried without disturbing the root system. Also make sure the pot is wet when transplanting. Sow 2 seeds per pot and do not thin. Germinates best at 22 C (72 F) in 7 to 10 days. Fertilize for the first 3 weeks with 10-52-17 formula. Cucumbers are good for dills when 5 cm (2 in) long and excellent for slicing when full grown. This variety is best grown on a fence or trellis as it is a vine type. Excellent space saver when grown this way.
