💡Temperature: Prefer warmer temperatures (70-85°F).
🐝 Pollination: Gardyn’s Cucumber variety does NOT require pollination and will only produce female flowers!
⭕ Support: We recommend using our Trellis and Plant Belts to direct the vine up your Gardyn’s columns and support the plant’s fruit.
✂️ Pruning: Cucumbers require pruning. Prune back the first 5 lowest flowers, and prune additional flowers as needed to limit the plant to a maximum of 5 cucumbers. Too many cucumbers growing on one plant can cause the young fruits to turn yellow or brown and shrivel before they can mature. Trim back the main stem at the height desired. This allows lateral branches to grow, making the plant bushier while ensuring it stays within your Gardyn’s light. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod.
🔎 Plant Health: Thrips are a common pest, but you can use our prevention and treatment tricks to keep pests at bay! Cucumbers thrive in fresh water and drink a lot while growing, so it’s best to keep your water level above 60% and top off weekly for healthiest growth.
🥒 Harvest: Harvest cucumbers when they reach 3-6 inches long, look dark green, and after the yellow flower falls off their tip. Cut the fruit at their individual stems. Letting cucumbers mature too long can cause them to taste bitter. Be careful of Cucumbers’ small spikes, which you can easily rub off after harvesting.
Cucumbers have been cultivated for over 3,000 years and originate from India. They moved from ancient India to Europe and the New World by way of the Greeks and Romans.
Cucumbers are crunchy vegetables low in calories and high in water and vitamins, particularly vitamins C and K. Most of their nutrients reside in their skin, so put down the peeler for max nutritional benefits!
Cucumbers taste wonderful raw, baked, sautéed, steamed, or boiled. Try sliced cucumbers in your water for a refreshing burst of flavor (and vitamins)!
