Seedling Image

Days to Emerge:
5 - 10 Days

Seed Depth:

Seed Spacing:
2 seeds ever 12"

Row Spacing:
3' apart

When 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant every 12"

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°-90°F.

When to start inside: 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Cucumbers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots.

Harvesting: Do not let cucumbers get too big; plants stop producing if there are overly mature cucumbers on the vine. Pick regularly before fruits are bigger than optimal size (see vegetable description). Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse "field heat", which increases the quality and life of picked fruit.
