Cucumber Slicing Diva 25 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
All American Selections Winner. Diva Cucumber just might be the best-tasting cuke on the planet. Diva looks like a regular salad cucumber but with a much smoother, thin, no-peel skin. Distinctly tender, crisp, sweet, bitter-free, and seedless; especially flavorful harvested small, about the size of a pickle. Plants are gynoecious (all-female) and parthenocarpic (grow fruits without pollination). Resistant to both mildews and scab. Foliage is non-bitter, hence not as attractive to cucumber beetles as some varieties. Harvest in about 60 days. Germination rate about 80% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
