Growing Info

Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile. To increase the quality and storage time, once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat”.

Special Care: Weed shallowly; roots are close to the soil surface. If planting in containers, we recommend a minimum of 10" soil depth and 14" diameter container. Cucumbers are heat sensitive. Several days of temperatures in mid 90s or more can prevent fruit set. Create afternoon shade using taller plants to the south or west, or use a shade cloth.
