55-60 Days to maturity. Cucumis sativus ‘Housaku’. Housaku Cucumber Seeds. Warm-season annual hybrid. Non-GMO. The name “housaku” means “good harvest” and it lives up to the name! It is a very productive Japanese hybrid cucumber producing more than 90% female flowers. This monoecious plant and its gorgeous golden flowers are highly compatible with pollinator-friendly gardens as well as companion planting. Burpless fruits have smooth skin with good flavor making them ideal for many uses. The Housaku cucumber favors open field and greenhouse growing situations. Approx. 1,100 seeds per oz.
Sow seeds directly into the soil after the last frost date. Keep the soil temperature between 60 and 90℉. You may seed indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost allowing you to get cucumbers about 2-3 weeks earlier. Prep the soil with fertilizer and then transplant the starts outdoors. See our free vegetable growing guide PDF above for more tips!
Keep the surrounding area free of weeds and inspect the leaves often to catch any issues early on. Fertilize when the first blooms open and periodically for the rest of the season to encourage fruit production. Accompany with deep and regular watering, but avoid water pooling near the roots. Housaku does well when allowed to climb upwards on a trellis or fence line.
Harvesting Housaku Cucumber
Harvest when the cucumbers are between 8 and 9 inches long. Remove the fruit promptly from the plant when they ripen.
This variety is ideal for eating fresh in any way you love. Housaku is tasty in cucumber salads, salsas, sandwiches, and more!
