Cucumber 'Summer Top'
- High yielding
Cucumber 'Summer Top' is a great choice for large gardens. It is a burpless variety, meaning it has reduced levels of cucurbitacin in its skin, which reduces the bitterness and may reduce burping.
Type: Japanese type/Slicing Cucumber
Fruit size: 9-10 Inches
Notable Features: Monoecious--male & female flowers on same plant. No pollinator plant needed.
Growth Habit: Spreading
Homeowner Growing Tips: Water deeply and fertilize regularly, as cucumbers are heavy feeders. Try to water at the soil level rather than using an overhead sprinkler to reduce mildew. Grow on a trellis or fence to save garden space. Harvest when fruit is young for best taste. Do not divide the plants that come in one pot--grow together on a small hill or mound in the garden, or in one large container.
