Everything about: Cucumber seeds - 'Long Maraicher' Cucumber

Long 'Maraîcher' Cucumber - Cucumis sativum (latin)

Rather long variety, with a good yield and less seeds than the other traditional varieties.

Type of soil: Rich and well drained. The soil needs to be worked deeply.
Sowing time: From April to June.
Harvest time: From July onwards.
Minimum temperature: The soil temperature must be above 12°C to allow germination.
Site: Full sun.

Sow directly in the ground:
- Make holes at least 30 cm deep and spaced out 1 m in all directions.
- Add a layer of vegetal matter at least 10 cm deep (lawn cutting waste for example) and cover with a mix of soil and compost (or a rich compost).
- Place three seeds on the surface, which you cover up with soil. Water using a fine, rain like spray.
- You will only keep the most robust seedling per hole when they have come through.
- If you live in a cold area, you can sow in pots.

Pruning and looking after:
- Mulch the ground to avoid the fruits getting dirty.
- Regularly pinch the branch extremities to encourage new shoots.
- Water regularly.
- You can let them run along the ground, or train them, as you wish.
