Diomede Cucumber is a hybrid, slicing cucumber with a comprehensive disease-resistance package. This American slicing variety is resistant to just about any disease that could plague cucumbers. In addition to the disease-resistance, Diomede produces very attractive fruits which are dark green and consistently straight. Fruits average 8-9″ long and have an excellent texture and flavor.

Diomede Cucumber is a gynoecious variety, meaning it produces only female flowers. Because the fruits originate from the female flowers, the yield is very high. Each packet of seeds contains 10-20% seeds of a pollinator variety that is similar in shape and size to Diomede. The pollinator is an open-pollinated variety that provides the male flowers needed for pollination. As a result, we recommend planting the entire seed packet to ensure the male flowers are present for pollination.

Cucumbers perform best when direct-seeded. They do not perform 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 provided 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 harvest and processing, in addition to reducing fruit discoloration or yellowing from sitting on the soil surface.

    These cucumbers are awesome! Starting with only one packet, I’ve done just about everything wrong that I could possibly do…started them in seed trays in March (supposed to be direct-seeded), transplanted them into the garden in late May (delayed by wet weather), transplanted about 1/3 of them two weeks later (still wet). We’ve eaten them sliced plain, in fresh cucumber salads, fermented, given them to family and neighbors, and they’re still producing like crazy in late July, showing no signs of giving out. I tried some small ones (5″-6″) along with fully grown ones (8″-9″) for fermenting, and they were all great. Will definitely grow these again!

    Tried this variety this year and all I can say is you better make sure you want cucumbers because these things will put it up to your eyeballs. These things don’t mess around. Best variety we’ve ever had.
