Organic Boothby’s Blonde Cucumber - Cucumis sativus
Organic Non-GMO Open-Pollinated Boothby’s Blonde Cucumber Seeds
A darling little heirloom from the Boothby family of Livermore, Maine, which has grown this variety for numerous generations. A very abundant producer of unique looking creamy-yellow (blonde) cukes with tiny black spines. No need to peel these sweet, crisp, delicate fruits! Best when eaten around 4" long. Recognized by the Slow Food Ark of Taste as a variety in need of preservation. Does well in containers. We trust you'll come to love this cutely odd and super tasty cucumber. Great sliced fresh, try drizzled with a little vinegar or lemon juice and a pinch of salt, superb in salads and on sandwiches, makes great pickles, especially bread and butter.
