The Ashley cucumber is a large variety of cucumber that is sweet and tender. The Ashley is green and smooth, and grows to be 7-8 inches long. Since this variety is mature in 65 days, a steady harvest can be achieved by planting regularly throughout the season. Medium, vigorous vines produce uniform 7 to 8 inch fruits that have a slight taper on the stem end. Produces heavily in hot, humid areas. Excellent for market. Downy mildew resistant.
Ashley cucumber seeds need full sun and should be planted in warm soil with a pH level between 6 and 6.8. Sow the seeds an inch deep with 36 inches between plants. If you are using a trellis, a foot between plants is adequate. Cucumbers will need regular watering while growing. When ready to harvest, cut the Ashley cucumbers at the stem. Especially great for coastal areas or humid areas because of its resistance to mildew. May is the standard time for planting. Soak seeds overnight before planting to promote germination. A trellis system will provide a higher yield, but you can also plant it with stakes.
