Bush Crop Cucumbers grow on compact vines which makes them great for container or small space gardening. The 6-8 inch fruit is straight has a dark bluish-green peel.  Bush Crop is great for slicing.  Pick by turning fruit parallel to the vine and snapping off with a quick snap.  This prevents vine damage.

Cucumbers are a tender, warm-season vegetable that can add a crisp cool snap to your favorite salad or sandwich.

Sizes:  1204, #4

Spacing: Plant 18″ apart in 60″ rows.

Height: Grows 6″ to 8″ tall.

How To Grow: Plant in full sun.

Outstanding Features: Cucumbers are very easy to grow.  Pick when fairly young to avoid bitter skin.  Although the cucumber has a higher water content than most vegetables, you can increase its nutritional value by serving without peeling it first.

Tips: When the cucumbers mature and are ready to be picked, picking them regularly instead of leaving them on the vine will keep them producing new cucumbers longer.  Harvest cucumbers in the early morning and they will be more crisp.
