The Cucumber Slicing Straight Eight, 'Cucumis sativus', is a very vigorous and productive open pollinated cucumber that is excellent for salads, slicing, or for making dill pickles. There is nothing more refreshing than a cucumber. This older, open pollinated variety is still around because it is simply a great variety. The Straight Eight is quite productive and is very vigorous. The cylindrical. very straight cucumbers are about 8 inches long./p>Plant in the spring after the last average frost date. Do not plant late as hot temps may preclude good flowering. Cucumbers prefer light, rich, well drained fertile soil with lots of organic matter. Cucumbers have a shallow root system and therefore require regular moisture. Do not let cucumbers get too big because the vines stop producing if over mature cucumbers stay on the vine
