Suggested Planting Requirements: Cucumbers can be seeded inside or in a greenhouse several weeks before the last frost, then transplanted into warm soil. Zones 9 and 10 can transplant out cucumbers in mid-April. Watch a video on how to transplant correctly on our YouTube channel. Plant cucumbers in small, 2’ high/2’ diameter mounds with plenty of added organic matter. If direct sowing, sow 6-7 seeds per mound. Once the seedlings sprout, thin to the 3 best vines. Plants can be potted and/or trellised and/or left to sprawl on the ground. For the best production, we recommend that you trellis your cucumbers and avoid overhead watering as this leads to foliar diseases.
Growing Recommendations: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70°F.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when the fruit is small to medium-sized for best flavor. For pickling, harvest as small as 2-3 inches or up to their mature size of 5-6″. Harvest fruit as it ripens to keep the vines productive. Store in a cool place. For more tips on cucumber growing, visit our YouTube channel. Watch a video on cucumber growing tips here.
