History: The Straight Eight Cucumber, an All-American Selections winner in 1935, has been a favorite in gardens for decades. Its reputation for producing uniformly straight and delicious cucumbers has made it a go-to variety for both home and commercial growers.

Uses: The Straight Eight is prized for its classic cucumber flavor and crisp texture, making it perfect for fresh salads, slicing, and pickling. The uniform size and shape of the cucumbers also make them ideal for market growers.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: Sow Straight Eight Cucumber seeds 1 inch deep in well-draining soil, in a location that receives full sunlight. This variety thrives in warm conditions. Space plants about 36 inches apart to allow for vining growth. Regular watering is crucial, especially during fruit development. For best results and easier harvesting, provide a trellis for the vines to climb. Harvest cucumbers when they reach about 8 inches in length for optimal flavor and texture.
