Description: If you have not tried parthenocarpic cucumbers, you have been missing out! These incredible vines are able to produce fruit without any need for pollination, so they ALWAYS yield heavily, and can even be grown indoors. Minime produces tons of snack-sized, tender cucumbers on medium to compact vines. 

Pack Size: 10 seeds

Latin Name: Cucumis sativus
Main Uses: Culinary
Days to Maturity: 50 days
Exposure: Full sun
Height: 45 - 60 cm (very compact vines)
Certified Organic: USDA Certified Organic

Germination: 7 - 14 days at 18 - 22ºC.
Indoors: 4 weeks before last frost date. Sow in individual 2 - 3" plantable pots, such as peat or coir, so as not to disturb the roots when transplanting. For best results, apply  Sea Magic™ kelp from first watering. Apply a seedling-starter fertilizer such as Evolve Seedling once the second set of true leaves has appeared, and then alternate between the kelp and seedling starter until transplant.
Outdoors: Direct seed after last frost date, once the soil temperature reaches 20ºC.
Planting Depth: 1/2" (outdoors).
Spacing: 4 - 5 seeds in hills spaced 12 - 18" apart. Thin to 2 - 3 plants per hill. If space is limited, plant closer together and provide a trellis.
Planting Out: Plant outdoors in 12" diameter hills in well-drained fertile soil once seedlings are established and all chance of frost is past.

Growing in Containers: Works well in large containers on a trellis.

Fertilizing (Containers): Plant in a quality, organic-based potting mix with good drainage. Fertilize regularly with organic plant food. Jobes organic fertilizer spikes are easy and effective!

Watering (Containers): Water containers deeply when top inch feels dry to the touch. Monitor every day or two during very hot weather.

Growing in Mixed Planters: Sprawling cucumber varieties with vigorous vines are not well-suited to mixed planters, but compact varieties may do well given a large container, such as a barrel.

Fertilizing (Garden): Plant in a garden recently amended with compost. No further fertilizing required.

Watering (Garden): Water evenly - very important!

Garden Companions: Nasturtiums are said to improve the flavour of cucumbers.

Harvesting: Pick regularly for continuous production.

 

Suitability for Indoors: May be grown indoors under lights, provided trellis support
