Product Details

"Quick Snack" cucumbers were meant to grow in 6"-8" pots, indoors, on sunny windowsill, counter tops, or balconies. Because they are parthenocarpic, they do not need pollinators to produce fruit. These cucumbers taste best when picked 1.5"-2.5" long and have dark green, smooth skin. Look inside the packet for full growing instructions.

Variety Info: Quick Snack' is a parthenocarpic cucumber meaning that it will set fruit without a pollinator. If grown indoors, fruit will be seedless. If grown outdoors next to other cucumbers with male flowers, seeds are likely to develop. Fruits are best when picked 1.5"-2.5" long and 1" wide.

Sowing Info

When to Sow Outside: NOT RECOMMENDED. This variety is best grown indoors in 6"-8" pots. However, it can be planted outside and will still yield fruits. If sown outside, 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°-90°F.

When to Start Inside: Sow directly into 6"-8" pots anytime from early spring to early autumn.

Days to Emerge: 5-10 days

Seed Depth: 1/2"

Seed Spacing: A group of 2 seeds per one 6"-8" pot

Row Spacing: Not applicable

Thinning: When 3 leaves thin to 1 plant per pot

Growing Info

Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile.

Special Care: When grown indoors, sow a group of 2 seeds per one 6"-8" pot. When seedlings have 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant per pot. Plants will require a small trellis in the pot to keep the plants climbing upright. When the plant reaches the top of the trellis, pinch the vine and allow the plant to spread width wise. Pinching will help the plant put energy into producing more fruits.
