Organic NY Slicing 264 Cucumber
63 days to harvest | Cucumis sativus
As Downy mildew becomes more and more prevalent, this cucumber will become more and more known, grown and beloved. With impressive resistance to Downy mildew, Organic NY Slicing 264 Cucumber has become our go-to for our July cucumber successions, deliciously abundant and undaunted in the height of late summer disease, powering on ’til frost.
A quintessential American slicer with classic flavor, the remarkable thing is this: cucumbers are still abundant in your garden, weeks after all other varieties have turned brown and died. Thank you to millennia of indigenous seedkeepers for co-adapting cucumbers and thank you to Cornell University for regionally adapting so many fabulous cucumbers for short seasons!
Grow Like a Pro: Here in the Northeast, we can grow several successions of cucumbers so we’re crunching them consistently from mid-July through frost. We sow a new succession every 2-3 weeks through mid-July. Make sure your final successions have resistance to powdery and downy mildew so you’ll continue to harvest fruit til frost!
