Cucumber

Cucumbers, cultivated in India and Egypt for over 3000 years, were introduced to Northern Europe by the Greco-Roman culture. All Cucumbers seem to have originated in southern Asia and Africa.

Cucurbits are tender, hungry, sun lovers who like to keep their feet in warm soil with ample moisture and good drainage.

Pick a sunny location. Plant cucurbits in hills, drills, or mounds. cucurbits need at least eight hours of full sun each day.

Give them a lot of room, horizontal or vertical, for their usually sprawling nature. Cucumbers grown vertically will be straighter!

They are not fussy about their soil, but, prefer a well drained sandy loam soil enriched with compost. Cucurbits have hearty appetites and love a deep mulch of compost.
