If you like your 'cues' really long, look no further than this one. Capable of producing tasty, tender fruits up to 50cm long, it has the added advantage of being grown either outdoors, in a warm, sheltered spot, or in a greenhouse, and the cucumbers are crisp and refreshing.
Sow Indoors February-April, 0.5cm (Â¼") deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. Temperature 21-24Â°C (70-75Â°F) Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. When plants have developed 3 or 4 leaves, transplant to 12cm (5â€) pots and grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 60cm (2') apart, during May-June, into fertile, well-drained soil. Or Sow outdoors May-June, for ease, where they are to crop. Sow two seeds per position, 0.5cm (Â¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 60cm (2') between rows. When large enough, thin to leave the stronger plant. Harvest: July-October.
