Cucumber Bedfordshire Prize F1

Description

Cucumber seeds - Bedfordshire Prize F1 is an old favourite for outdoor growing. Vigorous habit which produces high yields of light green ridged fruit which should be picked young to avoid bitterness.

Cucumber is a traditional salad vegetable which can be produced either in a glasshouse or outdoors. The long green types in the shops can only be grown with the aid of a heated glasshouse, but other forms are quite at home in your vegetable plot or produced earlier using cloches, cold frames or polytunnels.
