The Q&A Archives: Cucumbers Without Seeds

Question: I have planted a Burpee Spacemaster' cucumber in my small outdoor garden prepared with top soil, cow manure and mulch. I have harvested some beautiful looking cucumbers but, they were hollow (seedless). What caused this to happen? I looked in your library of questions and found that someone else had a similar problem with pickling cucmbers. Though we live in different states, could I also have a boron and calcium deficiency. I have read somewhere that a seedless cucumber (other than European)is caused by lack of pollination, could this be true? Thank you. Jean Cogswell Tarpon Springs, FL
