Cucumber Crystal Apple
Botanical Name: Cucumis sativus
Easy to grow, producing prolific crops of small fairly round cues which become deeper yellow as they mature.
We hope you enjoy these cucumber seeds, just another great example of vegetables seeds from Mr Fothergill's!
How To Grow
Sow 12mm (½”) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 40-50cm (16-20”) between clumps. When the young plants have 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out growing tips to encourage growth of side shoots. Grow alongside a trellis or fence if space is limited. Keep plants well watered, and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a complete fertiliser.
