Kew Cucumber 'Crystal Apple' Seeds

In stock

Crisp, tender flesh with a bitter-free, sweet fruity flavour. Best grown outdoors to trail on the ground or support on a trellis.

Sowing info: Sow mid April to early June, 2.5cm (1") deep, in pots or trays of good seed sowing mix at 20°C (68°F) under glass or in a propagator. Protect emerging seedlings from direct sunlight to avoid scorching.
Growing info: Pot on individual seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots of sowing mix and keep barely moist to avoid stem rot. Maintain a temperature of about 20°C (68°F). Plant out 75x75cm (30x30") apart once frost risk has passed. If space is limited, train up supports/netting. Do not remove male flowers as outdoor varieties need pollination. Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting commences and water and mulch regularly. Pick fruits whilst young and tender, older fruits can become bitter. Extend the season with cloches.
Harvesting: July, August, September, October
Contains approx: 30 seeds
