Whether you are tight for space or just want a terrific container cuke, this one’s for you. In field trials, Patio Snacker stayed within a 24-36 inch radius, yet still produced harvests rivaling its larger neighbors. The healthy vigorous plants yield white-spined, dark green-skinned fruit that are ideal for picking at under 2 inches wide and 6 1/2-7 inches long. They are crunchy, flavorful and bitter-free. Keep picked, and you’ll have continuous harvests all season long. Please call the store (740) 763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
Size Or Color When Ripe:
Depending on their use, harvest on the basis of size. Cucumbers should not be allowed to reach the yellowish stage as they become bitter with size. Harvest by cutting the stem 1/4 inch above the fruit. Don’t trample the vines any more than necessary to harvest the crop.
Frequent picking of cucumbers is essential as they grow and reach optimum quality. Delayed harvest results in reduced quality products and less productive plants because fruiting is an exhaustive process for the plant.
