Cucumber – Sumter – Cucumis sativus

Soil & Water: Cucumbers love rich soil that is high in organic matter and well drained. Water heavily during fruiting to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: In cool regions, start seeds indoors 10-14 days before the last frost, or sow seeds directly when the soil is at least 70F in a hill, thinning to the 3 best vines. Plant seeds 18″ apart if trellised or 36″ apart if left to sprawl.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest while small to medium-sized for best flavor. Keep harvesting fruit, even if misshapen, to keep vines productive.
