Cucumber - Mini Munch F1
This ideal lunchbox snack, with optimum flavour, crunchy but juicy picked and eaten straight from the plant. Wash if necessary but there is no need to peel these 7cm 'mini munch cukes'. Each plant is prolific fruiting if picked every other day throughout the summer.
Sow seed 1cm deep, in 7.5cm pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator and keep at a temperature of around 20-25C until after germination, usually 5-7 days. When first true leaves develop, transplant into 13cm pots. Finally, plant into 25cm pots or into growbags, and grow on at a minimum of 15C. Train along wire, allowing the main shoot to reach the tip. Pinch out growing point and allow two sideshoots to trail downwards. Keep plants moist at all times and shade if necessary. Keep humidity high and pick fruits regularly.
