A Park Exclusive! Sir Crunch a Lot is more than just a fabulous name — it’s a season-extender that you’ll treasure in those dog days of late summer, when all the other varieties have stopped bearing. And while it’s the ultimate in crunch (as you’d expect from its name), Sir Crunch a Lot is also rich and free of bitter taste, with a small seed cavity and extra-long fruit size. Can’t beat it with a stick!
These glossy dark green cukes reach 8 to 10 inches long, borne on compact and open-habit plants that make harvesting easy and spine-free. They look as good as they taste, and you’ll always get big yields on these plants, thanks to their resistance to cucumber mosaic virus, leaf spot, and blight/target spot. If you’ve ever had trouble growing cucumber plants before, Sir Crunch a Lot is the one to try for surefire success.
Direct-sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well-watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly. Pkt is 15 seeds.
