Organic Muncher Cucumber

Organic Muncher Cucumber

Tender, Burpless, Non-bitter. Crisp Like an Apple

Yielding robust vines bearing flavorful burpless cucumbers. Known for their thick, crack-resistant skin and disease-resistant foliage. This slicer variety ensures abundant, tender, and non-bitter cucumbers. Best picked at 4”, reaching full maturity at 9”. Celebrated for their crisp texture and versatile use, these cucumbers are perfect for salads, and sandwiches, and can be enjoyed raw, resembling the crispness of an apple.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Selecting the Right Location:

Choose a sunny spot in your garden. Muncher Cucumbers thrive in warm, sunny conditions and require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. 

Ensure the soil is well-draining and rich in organic matter. A pH level between 6.0 and 7.0 is ideal for optimal growth. 

Consider providing support for the cucumber vines to climb. Trellises or cages promote better air circulation and reduce the risk of disease.

Planting Muncher Cucumber Starts:

Wait until all danger of frost has passed before transplanting your Muncher Cucumbers into the garden. Cucumbers are sensitive to cold temperatures and thrive in warm soil.

Space the plants adequately apart in rows, allowing room for the vines to spread and ensuring good air circulation.

Plant the starts at the same depth as they were in their containers, gently firming the soil around the roots. Water thoroughly after planting to help settle the soil and reduce transplant shock.

Watering and Fertilizing:

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Cucumbers have shallow roots and require regular watering, especially during hot, dry weather.

Avoid overhead watering to reduce the risk of foliar diseases. Water at the base of the plants to deliver moisture directly to the roots.

Fertilize Muncher Cucumber Starts with a balanced fertilizer high in nitrogen to promote healthy foliage growth. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package carefully to avoid over-fertilizing.

Pest and Disease Management:

Monitor your cucumber plants regularly for signs of pests such as aphids, cucumber beetles, and spider mites. Early detection is key to preventing infestations.

Consider using natural pest control methods such as companion planting with marigolds or using insecticidal soaps and neem oil sprays.

Keep the garden clean and free of debris to reduce the risk of disease. Good air circulation around the plants also helps prevent fungal diseases such as powdery mildew.

Harvesting Muncher Cucumber:

Muncher Cucumbers are typically ready for harvest when they reach 4", but are fully mature at 9". Harvest regularly to encourage continued fruit production.

Use sharp scissors or garden shears to cut the cucumbers from the vine, taking care not to damage the plant.

Harvest cucumbers early in the morning when they are at their peak freshness and flavor. Store harvested cucumbers in the refrigerator to prolong their shelf life.

Growing Muncher Cucumber can be a rewarding experience for gardeners of all skill levels. By following these simple tips and guidelines, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of delicious, homegrown cucumbers all season long.

Useful Information

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
