Cucumber Seeds - Telegraph Improved

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2522
  • Pack Contents: 10x Cucumber Seeds
  • Be an environment hero
  • Improved heirloom variety
  • Smooth skins

An improved strain of this superb and much-loved English heirloom variety which was introduced around 1897. Telegraph is a reliable variety with long, smooth-skinned, good-sized fruits, easy to slice in the kitchen.

Relish every long fruit, free from bitterness and easy to slice in the kitchen to give tuna sandwiches a bit of bite or added to mint sauce and capers they make a great wet dressing to accompany lamb dishes.

In every pack you receive 10 seeds, enough to give you a summer-long supply of tasty cucumbers.  Not only can you appreciate the flavour from ripening in the sun, you’ll be doing your bit to reduce your carbon footprint by avoiding plastic-wrapped cucumbers from the supermarket.

The Royal Horticultural Society is so impressed with its performance, the gardening charity awarded it an Award of Garden Merit. Often used on the presentation benches in vegetable shows for cash rewards, Telegraph is a star performer. Even if yours don’t make it out of your own kitchen they are rewards enough for you.
