Slender, early, and thin skinned Japanese style long cucumbers on vigorous plants. Plant Tasty Emperor cucumber seeds for high-yielding plants that are productive for a long period with fruits growing to 25-30cm (10-12") long. They have superb flavour and a crisp, crunchy flesh. Be sure to trellis the vines for straighter fruits. Grow cucumbers in rich, fertile soil that is kept moderately moist throughout the season. We recommend using an handful of Complete Organic Fertilizer, worked into the soil at transplant time. Keep plants well picked for better production. Try to water the soil only, keeping the leaves as dry as possible.

Cucumis sativus
Family: Cucurbitaceae



Season & Zone

Season: Warm season
Exposure: Full-sun


Cucumbers need very warm soil to germinate. If direct sowing, wait until mid-June. If weather turns cool and wet after that, just re-sow. Or start transplants indoors in individual peat or coir pots 3-4 weeks before transplanting out into warm soil. If starting indoors, use bottom heat. Transplant when the plants develop their third true leaf. If the plants are too big, they may experience transplant shock. Optimal soil temperature for germination (and transplanting): 15-30°C (60-85°F).
