Cucumber 'Long Green'

A fleshy, easy to grow vegetable. Excellent for slicing. Yields sweet, crisp, emerald green fruit.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

For early sowing raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix under cover. Transplant after 3-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 4-5 seeds into mounds of moist soil 40cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Grow in a sunny well drained position. Raised seed beds give best results. Prepare soil by adding Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser regularly to encourage stronger growth. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.

Hint: Keep moist always, as drying out may cause bitterness in cucumbers.
