Cucumber - Swing F1 Hybrid
An all female 'American slicer', Cucumber Swing is ideal for both outdoor and greenhouse growing. Plants produce a heavy crop of slightly spined, dark green cucumbers, 20cm long with a crisp, juicy flesh. Cucumber Swing has excellent powdery mildew, weather and scab resistance.
Sowing from February to May 1cm deep, in 7cm 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. Plant outdoors once all risk of frost has past, allowing 90cm between plants. Can also be grown under glass similarly to other all female cucumbers. Keep plants well fed and watered throughout the growing season, to encourage the best quality fruits.
