Cucumber Mini Munch F1 is an ideal lunchbox snack when harvested at just 7cm (3in). The 8-10cm (3-4") fruits are mid-green in colour, smooth, firm and crisp with an exceptionally good taste and flavour. Sets well even in cooler conditions. Long cropping period.
When growing cucumbers, harvest regularly to encourage, long continuous production. Pick the fruits whilst young and tender before they show signs of producing seeds, as older fruits can become bitter. Harvesting cucumbers is best done early in the morning when temperatures remain cool.
