7 reviews

Fresh for slicing or pickling, this reliable variety has multi branching compact vines, small foliage for ease of picking and needs no pollination, making it a good choice for protecting against insects when growing under row cover. Utilize this cuke in the garden, containers or greenhouse. Yields even under stress and has some resistance to mosaic virus, downy and powdery mildew.

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.

Great Little Cucumbers

I enjoyed ordering my seeds from Pinetree!! The website is very clear as are the instructions on the seed packets. Even though Covid-19 caused a delay in my order, Pinetree ever so graciously included a $5 off coupon towards my next purchase. I am a novice gardener, yet still had success with my cucumbers! They were sweet and delicate and became very productive plants. I plan to plant them again!

H-19 Little Leaf Cucumber

Considering the Covid 19 experience, overall the shopping experience was great. Able to order online and received product in due time for planting. Thank you. The Little leaf germinated well, has grown leaps and bounds with lots of blooms. It has produced well this season. Thus far no evidence of any viruses or mildew leafs. I would recommend this product.
