Planting & Care

Soil and Water: Plant cucumbers in hills or mounds with plenty of added organic matter. Sow 6-7 seeds in a hill. Once the seedlings sprout, thin to the 3 best vines.

Planting and Growing: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70°F.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest at 1" long and not longer since fruit will get seedy if allowed to grow longer.
