Monoecious cucumber plants have both male and female flowers present on the same plant. Female flowers are the ones that will produce fruits. Both hybrid and open-pollinated cucumber plants can be monoecious. Monoecious cucumber varieties tend to have a longer harvest window. Cucumbers perform best when direct-seeded. They do not perform well when transplanted. They may be direct-seeded by hand or with a walk-behind seeder. To obtain a good stand of plants, we suggest planting seeds every 6-8″ inches and thinning to one seed per foot.
Cucumbers are a vining plant and grow best when provided a trellised structure to climb. Use a strong trellis that is well-supported with deeply driven stakes. Keeping plants off the ground will reduce the potential of plant diseases like mildews and other diseases that can result from excess plant moisture. Trellising will also keep the fruits cleaner and save time with harvest and processing, in addition to reducing fruit discoloration or yellowing from sitting on the soil surface.
