The Q&A Archives: Burpee Burpless Cucumber?

Question: In the last couple of years, I have not been able to find seeds for the Burpee burpless hubrid cucumber. It was an excellant climber and produced long skinny cucumbers with an edible very mild skin. Is it being sold under another name? What happened to the Burpee burpless cucumber?

Answer: I think you are referring to the cucumber currently listed as "Tasty Green" but formerly as the Burpless Hybrid. To quote the spring catalog: "62 days The first great burpless and still one of the best for yield and flavor. Grow on a trellis for 10" fruits." To order a catalog or check availability, you may call Burpee at 1-800-888-1447.
