Description

Mark it, 8 Dude cucumber is a fantastic pickling cucumber that produces heavily on our farm. During our summer trials and breeding of 2019, we crossed two popular varieties of cucumbers, and now have our hilariously named cucumber, Mark it, 8 Dude. This variety has the best qualities of both varieties we crossed; consistent size, productivity, and increased disease resistance, particularly to powdery mildew. Best when harvested at 4-5″ long. We pickle them all summer long!

Suggested Planting Requirements: Cucumber plants enjoy full sun and warm weather. Plant during the warm season.

Growing Recommendations: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70°F. Plants should be trellised and spaced correctly for adequate airflow and to prevent foliar diseases.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when the fruit is small to medium-sized for best flavor. Harvesting fruit as it ripens to keep the vines productive. Store in a cool place.
