Cucumber - Sumter - Cucumis sativus
Tender Annual Vines produce blocky, slightly tapered, medium-green cucumbers with white spines. Grows well in the north and south, for home, market or pickling.
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.
