Lemon Cucumber - Heirloom
Lemon Cucumber should be in everyone's garden. This heirloom produces lemon-shaped fruits with yellow skin and sweet crispy flesh. It makes so many cucumbers that one plant is often enough.
Lemon Cucumbers have excellent flavor, are easy to grow, easy to digest, and extremely productive. They do best with some support, but will trail along the ground just fine. Good for areas that have short summers, they also thrive in the desert with regular water. This heirloom makes everybody happy! 65 days.
Thoroughly moisten your seed-starting mix, and then fill your pots/containers to within 1/2" of the top.
Place two or three seeds into each small container or each cell of a seed starter. Cover the seed with about 1/4" of soil.
Water to ensure good seed-to-mix contact. You can use a plant mister or just dribble a stream of water over the top. You don't need to soak the soil, just moisten the top layer.
(You don't want to heavily water and "push" seeds to deep that they can't germinate.)
Keep the mix moist but not soaking wet. Lay some plastic kitchen wrap and a rubber band over pots to keep in heat and moisture.
Place the pots in a warm, sunny spot or on top of a heat mat. (Seeds won't germinate until the soil itself is 75-80 degrees.)
Check pots daily. As soon as you see sprouts, remove the covering and place the pots in a sunny window or under grow lights, keeping the lights just an inch or two above the tops of the plants.
