Mini-Me Cucumber

$999
Mini-Me Cucumber is an early variety that sets small, uniform, and spineless fruits. With thin, smooth skin and a mild, slightly sweet flavor, they make for perfect, snack-sized additions to fresh foods and beverages, or can be pickled for a tasty twist. 45 days to maturity. Cucumis sativa.
Description

The Mini-Me Cucumber is a dependable and high yielding variety that grows vigorously and forms a low-growing, far-spreading vine. By training the vines to grow vertically on support, you can improve air circulation, produce straighter fruit, prevent disease, and make harvest easier.

Cucumbers perform best when direct-seeded. They do not perform as well when transplanted. Cucumbers 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 given 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 harvesting and processing. It will also help to prevent fruit discoloration or yellowing from sitting on the soil surface. Our Hortonova Trellis Netting works great for trellising cucumbers and is easy to install.
