Muncher Cucumber (60 Days)

5 reviews

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.

    shorter and fatter than expected

    Choosing by the description and reviews, I was expecting the cucumbers to be 6" long and less than 2" wide. They are 1" wide at only 4" long. If allowed to get longer, they also get bigger - the 5" length approaches 2" wide. The wider they are the seedier they are. The texture isn't quite as crisp as I was expecting, but flavor was good. They are spineless, but slightly fuzzy. I was hoping for something like the "snackers" popular in grocers today, but these are not like them. For crispness, flavor, and size, Summer Dance is a better choice, but those aren't the compact length of grocery store "snackers" and the seed is more expensive. Although these didn't meet my expectations, they are a fun variation to add to our cucumber collection, along with Marketmore, Suyo, and a volunteer cucumber that is albino.

    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
