Muncher Cucumber (60 Days)

While the vines are compact they are also very strong, making Muncher a fine choice for container growing. It is a Middle Eastern Beit-Alpha type so the skin is very smooth and practically spineless. Delicious, burpless, and never bitter. The heavy yields of Muncher also pickle well at about the 4” size. It will reach 9” at full maturity.

PLANTING

Cucumis sativus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and pick every day to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation, takes up less space and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Best results I've ever had with cucumbers!

Germination rate was over 90% and fast. Just started getting mature fruit in CT and there are tons of buds. Hopefully keep the kiddos full all summer as they love cucumbers. They said they are better than the ones we get from the grocery store.

I’ve been a satisfied customer for about 30 years!

Pinetree is the best seed company, in my opinion. I love the variety they seek out and it’s great that their varieties do well in northern climates. My seeds always sprout great and they’ve kept prices down amazingly. Way to go!!

seed order

The experience was fine. The seeds arrived in time to start some indoors. Spring in far northeastern MN is very late, so only the seeds germinated inside are up. Pinetree is one ofmy favorite places to go for seeds.
