Cucumber - Muncher - Cucumis sativus
Tender Annual Smooth, medium green 9" long fruits. Strong vigorous vines produce an abundant supply of tender, burpless cucumbers. Muncher is aptly named because these non-bitter cucumbers can be eaten like an apple straight from the garden! They are also well suited to pickling if they are picked at 4"-6" long.
Soil & Water: Plant cucumbers in hills or mounds with plenty of added organic matter. Sow 6-7 seeds in a hill, thinning to the 3 best vines.
Planting & Growing: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70F. Plant seeds 18" apart if trellised or 36" apart if left to sprawl.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest while small to medium-sized for best flavor. Keep harvesting fruit, even if misshapen, to keep vines productive.
