I am looking for plants of these slender varieties. Any CH'ers every grow them and where to get plants? Prefer west of Boston.
If you can't find any plants, this is the perfect time to plant seeds. If you check online at places like Johnny's Selected Seeds (located in Maine) you will find varieties that will do well around here and arrive at your door within days.
I adore those cucumbers and we go through alot of them. It didn't dawn on me to look for them in the nurseries. Great idea! I will report back! Probably too late to start them from seeds.......
I don't think it's too late to start seed outside, looks like they were suppose to be in the ground last weekend.
What a great chart.....thanks for sharing! :)
I would call Russell's or Mahoney's, they tend to have a ton of veggie plants of the slightly non-standard variety. Great idea to grow them!
Russell's is a good bet.
Cucumbers are really easy and fast to grow from seed and now is the time to plant, if you don't see these particular seedlings.
These days Trader Joe's usually carries them, but heck keep it real and go to Arax in Watertown or Waltham India Grocery.
Trufflehound is looking for plants - would those places have seedlings?
