Genus Cucumis
Group/Species sativus
Variety Burpless Tasty Green
Type Half-Hardy Annual
Common Name Cucumber
Soil Type Fertile
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist
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.

No cucumbers to eat yet, and it's now the 1st of August. There are some forming, but they are still tiny...

Amazing results

I bought 3 seedlings last year to grow in the greenhouse.
They are the very best cucumbers I have ever grown. One plant looked as though it was attempting a "take over" of the greenhouse.The seeds are sweet and the flesh is crisp. I will definitely grow these again next year.
