How to Grow SMR 58 Cucumbers

When to Plant Cucumber Seeds

Cucumbers should be directly sown a 3-4 weeks after the last frost in the spring. They can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost, using a grow light and seed starting soil mix.

Where to Plant Cucumber Seeds

Plant Cucumbers in an area that receives full sun in rich, well-draining soil.

How to Plant Cucumber Seeds

You can amend your soil with compost or aged manure prior to planting. Preferably in the fall so it will over-winter. Plant ½ inch deep and about 1 inch apart. Alternatively, you can create hills 4 – 6 feet apart, with 6-8 seeds per hill. Cut the three weakest plants once seedling emerge for this method. Make sure to keep soil moist, avoid letting the soil dry out completely. Germination generally takes around 10 days when temperatures are ~70 degrees. They are vine plants, so setting up a trellis may be beneficial depending on your garden.

How to Harvest Cucumbers

Harvest before they are fully mature, as cucumbers tend to get seedy once they’re at their largest. They grow very fast, so be sure to check often to see if it’s time to harvest. Make sure to cut them off the vine, as pulling them off can damage or break the vine, preventing further production.

  1. Growing like gangbusters in clay soil

    Bought these because I love French cornichons and the cucumbers for making them are hard to find. First time gardener and these are doing wonderfully in Northern Virginia, despite our humid and intermittently very wet/very dry weather. I put some plants in barely amended clay soil and others in prepared raised beds with expensive soil. The ones in clay are growing like crazy, I can barely keep up with the vines.

    Do be vigilant about harvesting. I’ve missed several cukes at the bottom of the vine hat grew humongous, when I’m trying to pick yem when they’re the size of a pinky finger.

    I hope the cornichon pickles turn out well but so far very pleased with my seeds! Good germination rate, too.
