Organic Cucumber: Straight Eight Planting Instructions:
Straight Eight Cucumbers do best in full sun. In general, cucumbers do not transplant well. Direct-sow the seeds 3” apart in groups of 4 to 6 per hill, covering the seeds with ½” of soil. Space the hills 3 to 4’ apart. When the plants are 1 to 2” tall, thin to 3 seedlings per hill. Cucumbers are a heat-loving plant and are vulnerable to even light frost. If the temperatures drop, cover the seedlings. As the plants establish, use mulch to control weeds and conserve moisture.

Organic Cucumber: Straight Eight Harvesting Instructions:
Generally, cucumbers meant for slicing are ready for harvest when 6 to 8” long. For pickling, harvest when the fruit is 3 to 5” long. Cucumbers are at their most tender and best-tasting when they are harvested young, before the seeds are fully developed. Cut the fruit from the vine, rather than pulling it off to avoid damaging the plant.
