Burpless Supreme Cucumber is one of the mildest cucumbers on the market. It is bred for its thin skin for reduced cucurbitacin, the biochemical that is believed to be responsible for the “burps”, and to be virtually seedless for sensitive systems. This variety is great when sliced, and is top-notch for pickling when harvested small.
Burpless Supreme are mainly harvested between 7″-8″ in length but fruits can grow much longer!
Cucumbers perform best when direct-seeded. They do not perform as well when transplanted. Cucumbers may be direct-seeded by hand or with a walk-behind seeder. To obtain a good stand of plants, we suggest planting seeds every 6-8″ inches and thinning to one seed per foot.
Cucumbers are a vining plant and grow best when given a trellised structure to climb. Use a strong trellis that is well-supported with deeply driven stakes. Keeping plants off the ground will reduce the potential of plant diseases like mildews and other diseases that can result from excess plant moisture.
Trellising will also keep the fruits cleaner and save time with harvesting and processing. It will also help to prevent fruit discoloration or yellowing from sitting on the soil surface. Our Hortonova Trellis Netting works great for trellising cucumbers and is easy to install.
