The Lebanese Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) is a burpless, sweet tasting variety best tasting when picked up to 10 cm long. Perfect for summer dishes, salads, sandwiches, and added to drinks and punches.
How To Grow:
- Sow 12mm deep, direct in final position.
- Sow 4-5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the strongest 2 seedlings.
- Allow 100cm between rows and 40-50cm between clumps.
- At 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out growing tips to encourage side shoots.
- Keep well watered and prepare the soil with organic material and or complete fertiliser.
- Cucumbers grow on a vigorous vine that is best trained up a supporting structure or frame. They can rot quickly when they touch the soil, hence the need to get them up off the ground to ensure they ripen evenly and healthily.
When To Plant: Spring and Summer.
Harvest: 8-12 weeks from sowing or 5-10cm long.
