My fondest memories of vegetable gardening include picking cucumber fresh off their vines.  Warmed by the sun I always enjoy eating cucumbers straight out of hand, they have a delicious but slight sweetness and are refreshingly crisp to bite into.  Sliced cucumbers also make a wonderful addition to salads and sandwiches.  Our full range of heirloom cucumber seeds available to buy can be found below:
