Marketmore 76 Organic Cucumber Planting Instructions:
Cucumbers need warm soil and air, as they are very sensitive to cold. Whether you direct seed or transplant your cucumber seeds, they will not germinate if the soil temperature is lower than 50 F. They only germinate slowly at 68 F. Plant 1/2 inch deep and 3" apart in full sun. Thin to 8-15 inches apart in rows of 2 to 3 plants per hill. Snip off plants when thinning to avoid disturbing the roots of neighboring plants.
Marketmore 76 Organic Cucumber Harvesting Instructions:
Harvest cucumbers about 60-70 days from planting. Cucumbers can be picked any time there is fruit present. To harvest the first cucumbers, cut the vine about &frac;" above the fruit. Harvest all of the fruit before maturity to ensure quality and a higher yield. At peak harvest, cucumbers should be picked daily.
