Growing Info

Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow the production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile. To increase the quality and storage time, once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat”.
