Slender pale-white slicing cucumber
Silver is one of the noble metals. And just like the metal, this cucumber withstands heat, time, and weather. Precious silver and this delicious slicing cucumber share other important traits as well. Both are resistant: silver to corrosion and oxidation from moist air, and the cucumber to powdery mildews also caused by humid conditions. Let this silver-skinned cuke illuminate your garden, brighten your salads, and remind you to reflect on the joys of growing your own food.
Great slicer with a creamy-white thin skin and long, straight, uniform 6-8" fruits. This cucumber has a superb juicy, sweet, and mild taste and good crunch, and has been winning tasters over since its introduction.
Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
