Announcement    Here is an overview of the rare high quality heirloom cucumber and cucumber-melon seed varieties that I offer: https://youtu.be/ADtCGyDYHR0

Please be aware that this Seed Shop is a hobby seed business that borders on philanthropy - meaning I often invest more money and energy into it than I receive. Since 2014, my in-person cash seed price has been $2.50. However, Etsy's increasing fees have cut into my ability to offer a quality product at a reasonable price. While the seed I offer is extraordinarily rare and high-quality, I make much less than $1 per hour.

About CucumberShop

Sales 3,410
On Etsy since 2014

Dedicated to bringing you The Best Cucumbers in the World!

Hello there. My name is Jay and welcome to my little Cucumber Shop. https://cucumbershop.com

My seeds are all open-pollinated. Each variety of cucumbers I grow using organic gardening methods. Most of the varieties I sell are heirloom. Many are rare, some are extremely rare and a few have recently been saved from extinction.

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.

Payment

Taxes: Though vegetable seeds are not eligible for sales tax in the state of California, Etsy continues to collect sales tax on them - even when sold within the state. If you have a problem with this, please contact Etsy - as I am done trying to solve this problem.

Terms: If you have any problems with my product or me, please contact me.

Shipping

U.S. Postal Service Stamps unless ordering 13 (thirteen) or more items in a single order. Then I will ship via padded envelope. Seeds are living things and can sometimes degrade if exposed to freezing or very hot conditions. While I do my best to avoid shipping at times where the conditions are not suitable for seeds, I cannot control any decreases in germination between shipping and receiving an order. That being said, if seed in your order has poor germination, please contact me and I'll see what I can do to help.

Additional policies and FAQs

Cucumber Shop guarantees only seed quality and purity and will not be liable for more than the purchase price.

Please note that no permission is given to use any picture related to my products, without express consent.

Privacy

Your information is used for shipping your order and communicating about the seeds that I send. I might occasionally send some kind of offer or some helpful information, but don't count on it.
See this Seller Handbook article for a sample privacy policy you can customize for your shop.

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.
