description for "Cucumber: cucumber 'Eureka'"

'Eureka' is the most disease-resistant Cuke ever grown and is also uniquely versatile. Unlike most varieties, which are grown specifically for use in pickling or in fresh eating, Eureka can do both -- deliciously! Direct-sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly. Eureka reaches 4 to 6 feet high and 2 feet wide. 57 days to maturity.
