CUCUMBER Lightning Jack Seeds

Inc. GST + FREE Shipping

The variety Cucumber Lightning Jack is a highly rewarding cucumber variety in any home vegetable garden, as it is one of the earliest fruiting varieties (as early as only 8 - weeks after sowing) and produces many large, soft-skinned cucumbers over an extended harvest season. The fruit is generally tender, but crisp, mildly sweet, with a soft inside (the seeds are not chewy like the thick-skinned supermarket types!) Unlike many common cucumber varieties, Cucumber Lightning Jack is generally resistant to many types of mildews (which often affect cucurbits), ensuring your vegetable garden remains healthy. Cucumber Lightning Jack is a trailing variety, so it will need at least a metre to run and remember, like all cucumbers, will require a sunny spot in the garden and for the leaves to remain dry during watering. Marigolds can be inter-planted with cucumbers, as they act as a natural insect pest repellent, please visit our store for more details.
