Bush Crop

55 days — As its name implies, 'Bush Crop' cucumber plants are compact, dwarf, bushy and yet are very productive. The cucumber fruit are deep-green in color and harvested at six to eight inches in length for slicing. They are also a good choice for making pickles.

Since the plants are compact with very short vines, they are also a great choice for small garden spaces. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Cucumbers grow best with long, hot, humid days with maximum sunshine and warm nights. Plants are extremely susceptible to frost. Sow seeds outside only after danger of frost when soil has warmed. Make a second sowing 4 to 5 weeks later for a late summer or early fall harvest. For an earlier harvest and to reduce the threat of insect damage to seedlings, start a few plants indoors in individual pots (or trays with separate compartments) about a month before your last spring frost date.

Sowing: To seed in rows, plant seeds 1 inch deep and about 6 inches apart. To plant in hills, plant four or five seeds in 1-foot-diameter circles set 5 to 6 feet apart.
