Disease Resistant

We love cucumbers, the more the merrier! Our humid climate amplifies disease on cucumbers, making disease resistance increasingly important and especially essential for late summer harvests from second successions. Fruition Seeds shares delicious diverse cucumbers resistant to Powdery as well as Downy Mildew. Sow cucumber seeds directly in your soil after frost, leaving at least 3’ between plants. At Fruition, we sow every three weeks through mid-July for abundant harvest through frost.

To help our cucumbers thrive, we tuck floating row cover over hoops to protect from cucumber beetles until they flower, which is the best way to prevent bacterial wilt transmitted by the beetles.
