About CucumberShop

Sales 1,296
On Etsy since 2014

Dedicated to bringing you The Best Cucumbers in the World!

Hello there. My name is Jay and welcome to the little Cucumber Shop.

The idea for Cucumber Shop began well before 2012, from a conversation I had with an Arizona and Tucson gardening guru named George Brookbank. At one Tucson Organic Gardener’s meeting I told him several of my concerns with the regular Armenian cucumber variety, to which he recommended an Armenian-type cucumber called a “Serpentine Cucumber”. His suggestion began my search for more regular cucumber and cucumber-melon varieties that would grow well in Arizona’s climate. Each time I grew out each new cucumber variety and experienced more success, I decided that I could offer these varieties to others. Over time, as I obtained more and more varieties, the little hobby seed shop has taken shape to become Cucumber Shop.

2012- registered CucumberShop domain & developed logo

2013- registered trademark and began ecommerce shop on Blogger

2014- CucumberShop opened on Etsy

2019- CucumberShop.com became its own website

Other events include acquiring specific cucumber varieties and domain names.

Several domains that are incorporated into Cucumber Shop include:
CucumberSeed.com, CucumberSeeds.com, CucumberSeeds.net, CucumberSeedShop.com and ItalianCucumbers.com.

Frequently asked questions
Are your seeds Heirloom, Organic or Genetically-Modified?

Each seed variety that I sell is open-pollinated and, in a sense, heirloom. Many of the varieties I offer have ancient origins, dating back over a century or more. Each cucumber variety I grow out is grown in an organic fashion, without the use of pesticides. None of the varieties that I offer are genetically modified.

What makes your cucumbers better than other cucumber varieties on the market?

The Carosello and Armenian-type cucumber varieties I offer are bitter-free, burpless rare heirloom cucumber seeds. Our goal is to offer the most delicious gourmet fresh-eating cucumbers that can be found anywhere. Many varieties possess specific shapes, contours, coloring, or incredible flavor that make them stand out from other cucumber varieties. Although they originate from southern Europe (mostly Italy) these cucumber varieties can (and do) grow anywhere you can grow regular cucumbers and perform even better in hot climates.

Will these cucumbers cross with my other cucumbers?

Many of the varieties that I offer are cucumber-melons (botanically a melon and agriculturally a cucumber). If you are a seed saver and want to save pure seeds, you can grow any cucumber-melon (Cucumis Melo) next to regular cucumbers (Cucumis sativus) without crossing. If you are trying to grow pure seed, just make sure not to grow two cucumber-melon varieties (Cucumis Melo)  together or two regular cucumber varieties (Cucumis sativus) together, as they will cross.
