Sumter Cucumber

In Stock

Medium-green color with white spines, blocky and slightly tapered.

55 days — The fruit of 'Sumter' cucumber vines are a medium-green color with white spines and are blocky and slightly tapered in shape. Well adapted for many parts of the country and excellent as both a home or market garden variety.

Bred and released by W. C. Barnes of the Clemson Agricultural Experiment Station in 1973. 'Sumter' exhibits resistance to powdery mildew, downy mildew, angular leaf spot, anthracnose, scab, cucumber mosaic virus and watermelon mosaic virus. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 35 to 40 seeds.
Productive and great for pickling
We have trouble with spotted cucumber beetles and powdery mildew here. I tried Sumter because of its resistance to powdery mildew, and I hoped it might also take longer to be felled by bacterial wilt. (I also planted it with radish seeds--just left the radish plants there, didn't harvest them--because I read this would deter the beetles. I also picked off any beetles I saw, as always.) Well, it did great! The plants lasted a month longer than any other cucumbers I've tried--all the way till frost. I got 25 pints of pickles and relish out of six plants!
