Seeds closet to store beans and mini cuke.

Post  milaneyjane on 3/2/2016, 6:14 pm

Hi all,
It has been a long while since I have been here.    Shocked  Does anyone know what variety cucumber would be closest to the mini cukes at Aldi and the thin green beans at Costco?  I have a picky teen eater, lol!

Hi, Jane, I would contact the regional offices of the companies directly. By the way, I think you are being a clever mom trying to find seeds for the foods that you know they already like.

I bought the seeds for this cuke based on the description, that sounds like those tender little cukes at Krogers, but I haven't grown them yet....

Lots of seed companies carry them.

I grew baby persian cucs the last two years.  I love them.  Small and very few seeds.
