|Height||Up to 1.8m (6ft) tall|
|Spacing||As soon as the roots fill their first pot, if the frosts are over, plant them out about 26cm (10in) apart.|
|Sowing, Seeds, Planting||Sow under cover in Feb-March to be ready to go out when the frosts finish in May. Sow them individually, vertically down (to prevent rotting) into 3in/7.5cm pots. Germinate at unusually high temperatures of at least 21C/70F (at 24C/75F you'll get quicker germination). Seedlings should appear in just over a week. Harden off and plant out in late May.|
|Care Tips||They are climbers so give some support. Water well, and dig in a good lot of compost when planting out. Regular picking promotes further growth. Protect with a fleece in cool months.|
|Harvesting||You'll be eating the fruits by the end of June. If you keep picking, they'll go on producing into the autumn, and finish in October. This cucumber grows to about 20-25cm long.|
|Cooking Notes||Make soup and pickles if you have a glut.|
