Seed - Cucumber Telepathy F1
1 RHS Cucumber Telepathy F1 seed pack
(Botanical Name: Cucumis sativus)
Pack Size 10 seeds
An extraordinary hybrid variety that produces longer fruit than the traditional telegraph types. With fast growing vigorous vines and abundant crops from early in the season, this cucumber is a sure favourite. The fruits are rich in vitamin C and vitamin A and ideal for slicing due to their elongated shape and crisp texture.

Sow 12mm (1/2in) deep. Cover with a fine layer of compost and firm gently. Keep soil moist and warm. Seedlings appear in 6-10 days.
Thin clumps to the strongest seedlings allowing 40-50cm (16-20in) between plants. Train up wires, remove growing point at roof level. Untrained plants will not produce straight fruits. Keep well-watered and weeded.
