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 which 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 at least half the seed packet (25 seeds) 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.
