Description

Be sure to check out our Cucumber Growing Guide to learn more about how you can successfully grow cucumbers at home.

Hossinator Slicer Cucumber is a hybrid, great southern slicing cucumber with a comprehensive disease-resistance package. Extremely prolific. A great variety for both spring and fall. This slicing variety is resistant to just about any disease that could plague cucumbers. In addition to the disease resistance, the Hossinator Slicer has a vigorous, strong plant with hardy skin with fruits that average 8.4" long and have an excellent texture and flavor. A refreshing choice for platters and salads, perfect for the home grower, and market gardeners.

Hossinator Slicer Cucumber is a monoecious variety, meaning it produces both male and female flowers. Monoecious cucumber plants have both male and female flowers present on the same plant. Female flowers are the ones that will produce fruits. Both hybrid and open-pollinated cucumber plants can be monoecious. Monoecious cucumber varieties tend to have a longer harvest window. We recommend trellising monoecious varieties for an extended harvest.

Cucumbers perform best when direct-seeded. They do not perform well when transplanted. Cucumbers may be direct-seeded by hand or with a walk-behind seeder. To obtain a good stand of plants, we suggest planting Seeds every 6-8" inches and thinning to one seed per foot. Cucumbers are a vining plant and grow best when provided a trellised structure to climb. Use a strong trellis that is well-supported with deeply driven stakes. Keeping plants off the ground will reduce the potential of plant diseases like mildews and other diseases that can result from excess plant moisture. Trellising will also keep the fruits cleaner and save time with harvest and processing, in addition to reducing fruit discoloration or yellowing from sitting on the soil surface.

Loving The Slicers

I love how they germinated and quickly started climbing the trellises, I had some critter problems so I had to start some plants over but you can see them climbing the trellis. I also wanted to show you some pics from my Hossinators, Homesteads, and Florida 91 plants.
