VEGETABLE CUCUMBER CRYSTAL APPLE

VEGETABLE CUCUMBER CRYSTAL APPLE. A great outdoor Heirloom variety originally bred in New Zealand early last century.  Can be grown equally as a ground ridge cucumber it can be trained to climb on a trellis if space is short.  The golf to tennis ball sized fruits are produced in abundance if cropped on a regular basis all summer. The flavour is sweet with no bitter after taste and a crisp refreshing texture. This outdoor variety is best grown against a support, or it can be left to trail on the ground if preferred. Height: 3m (9′). Spread: 45cm (18″).

Cultivation Advice VEGETABLE CUCUMBER CRYSTAL APPLE

  • Sow under cover (protected with warmth provided) from Mid spring,
  • 3-4 seeds 1in deep in a 3in pot in good compost, and thin later to the best one or two plants per clump.
  • Transplant no later than 3 weeks after seeding as cucumbers have a tap root that can be easily damaged.
  • Ensure the weather is warm if planting outside, ensuring a sheltered and sunny position.
  • Cucumbers germinate and grow best when summer really gets going or under glass.
  • To avoid bitterness, keep plants evenly moist at all times.
  • Can be trained on a trellis to save garden space or left to roam.
  • Keep them picked and they’ll keep producing.
