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.

    Sweet to Eat

    These grew well and were very sweet to eat....truly no bitterness. Nice sized fruits at 9 inches.

    Tasty

    2017 season. These seeds sprouted nicely outside and I trained the vine up a plant teepee of sorts. Started getting plenty of fruit but I think weather conditions cut its life short. Will try again this year.

    Super, Delicate, Sweet, Tender

    No matter how big these got (due to our inattention) they were sweet and tender and delicious. These are super crunchy and never bitter. We LOVED them. xo
