CULTURAL PRACTICES: The cucumber is a climbing vine which will do well on a trellis if you have limited space or wish to produce straighter fruit. It can also be grown on the ground. Germination will begin only when planted in a warm soil, around 16º C but not below 10º C, and when there is no longer any risk of frost, which cucumber plants cannot survive. Start seeds indoors at least 3 weeks before transplanting. Reduce planting stock by using Jiffy Pots (see Gardening Aids). SOIL: Light, well-drained soil. SPACING: Put 5 to 6 seeds per mound and space them 1.5 to 3 metres apart all around. GROWING TIPS: Full sun and moisture are necessary. Before transplanting, the soil must be well watered. Use black mulch to protect seeds and to increase soil temperature. HARVEST: Pick slicing cucumbers when their size has reached about 15 to 20 cm in length. Pickling cucumbers should be picked when they are 2.5 to 7 cm long.
