Start Seeds Outdoors 

Plant heat loving cucumbers only when weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay above 50F (10C). Amend soil well with aged manure or compost. Sow in groups of 2 to 3 seeds 1.5 ft. apart and 1 in. deep with 3 ft. between rows. Or make slightly mounded hills 5 ft. apart, sowing 5 or 6 seeds per hill. Thin to the 3 strongest plants.

Growing Notes 

Protect seedlings from marauding birds with plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Shallow-rooted cucumbers need ample and consistent moisture. Avoid overly wet or dry periods for good quality fruit. Growing cucumber vines up vertical supports gives you long straight fruits, saves garden space and makes them easy to harvest.

Harvest and Use: 

Cut rather than pull fruits from vines before seeds are large inside. Harvest every few days for longest fruit production. These juicy tender cucumbers are perfect to slice and enjoy for refreshing snacks, in salads and sandwiches. Eat cucumbers within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality.
