  • 5-6" fruit 
  • 1/16 oz

InstructionsCucumbers prefer well-drained fertile soil high in organic matter with neutral pH. Cucumbers are heavy feeders. Sidedressing is recommended one week after blossoming and again 3 weeks later, especially if there are signs of deficiency. Cucumbers can be direct-seeded or transplanted one week after all danger of frost has passed. Start transplants 3-4 weeks before the planting date. Plants with one or two true leaves transplant best. The optimal soil temperature for germination is 85°F. Plastic mulch and row covers are commonly used for field cucumbers to increase soil and air temperature and ward off insects. Make sure to remove row covers when plants begin to flower to ensure pollination.

  • Plant 1/2" deep 
  • Plant Spacing:  For slicing cukes 12-24", for pickling cukes 8-12”, for greenhouse cukes 20”
  • Row spacing: for slicing and greenhouse cukes 5-6’, for pickling cukes 3-6'

Harvest & Storage - Once plants begin to bear, it is important to harvest every day or two. Plants carrying overripe fruit will slow production. Cucumbers store well for up to 7-10 days at 50-55°F with 95% relative humidity and can become injured at temperatures lower than 50°F. Thin-skinned cucumbers are best stored and wrapped in plastic.
