Spacemaster Cucumbers

Has your garden ever been overrun by cucumber plants that spread everywhere? Spacemaster is the solution! Its 2' to 3' vines make it the ideal choice for small growing areas. It produces large numbers of flavorful, full-sized slicing cucumbers, perfect for snacking, salads, and sandwiches, and even for pickling when harvested small.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperatures are warm, at least 65° F.

When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Pick Spacemaster regularly at 7" - 8" long or smaller. Plants stop producing if there are overly mature cucumbers on the vine. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat”; this increases quality and life of picked fruit.
