Advice for growing cucumber
Three to four weeks after the typical spring last frost date, plant cucumber transplants or sow cucumber seeds in the garden.
Cucumber plants prefer soil temperatures of 70°F (21°C).
Cucumber seeds can be started indoors for up to six weeks before they are transplanted outside.
Early in the season, shield cucumbers from sudden frost or chilly evening temperatures. To ward off the chill, use plastic tunnels or floating row covers.
From sowing to harvest, cucumbers require 55 to 65 frost-free days.
Straw or chopped leaves can be used as mulch around cucumber plants. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and will keep the fruits and vines clean.
Straw or pine straw mulch is tough for slugs and snails to navigate.
Advice for picking cucumber
After seeding, cucumbers will be available for harvest in 55 to 68 days.
Cucumbers should be picked as soon as they reach their full size because if they are left on the vine after they are fully developed, new blooms and fruit will not be produced.
To keep ahead of the harvest, check the cucumbers daily and harvest them.
The optimal time to harvest slicing cucumbers is when they are 6 to 8 inches (15–20 cm) long.
Make use of a garden clipper, scissors, or knife to cut cucumbers from plants. Cucumber harvesting can cause plant harm.
A fruit is overripe and will have seeds if the blossom end, which is opposite the stem, becomes yellow.
Sweet or dill pickling cucumbers are best selected when they are 1 to 6 inches (2.5-15 cm) long. Every two days, harvest cucumbers for pickling.
Pick regular dills when they are 3 to 4 inches (7–10 cm) long for optimal flavor.
Pick burpless cucumbers when they are around 10 inches long.
English or Armenian cucumbers cultivated in a greenhouse are best harvested when they are 12 to 15 inches (30–38 cm) long.
