Cucumber 'Diva' produces distinctly tender, crisp, sweet, bitter-free, and seedless cukes. Plants are gynoecious (all-female) and parthenocarpic (grow fruits without pollination). Foliage is nonbitter, hence not as attractive to cucumber beetles as some varieties.
Savor (F1) - Unsurpassed eating quality. The small, 2 lb. melons are of the classic Charentais type: faintly ribbed, with a smooth gray-green rind and dark green sutures. Sweet and aromatic, deep orange flesh. Resistant to fusarium races 0, 1, & 2, and powdery mildew. Avg. 14,350 seeds/lb. Packet: 20 seeds. Days to Maturity or Bloom: 78
This really works - no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.
