MUNCHER CUCUMBER (60 days)

3

Germ 6-10 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. 20 seeds

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees

Harvest- Pick daily to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost. Mulch and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation and takes less space than hills and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce.

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
