Description How to Grow Delivery
For tasty gherkin sized cucumbers that are great for picnics and packed lunches, Cucumber 'Corentine' is a great variety to grow. It produces loads of 10-15cm (4-6”) fruits with crisp, seedless flesh and dark green skins. It is a parthenocarpic cultivar which means that it doesn't require insects to cross pollinate it, for the cucumbers to grow. It's also cool tolerant, so will still produce plenty of cucumber, even if the summer is not so great. (Grafted)Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 45cm (18").

Water cucumber plants regularly. Apply greenhouse shading as required and create a humid atmosphere by regularly spraying or damping down pathways.


Climbing greenhouse types will produce higher yields if allowed to climb. Train the main shoots onto 1.8m (6ft) high nets, canes or strings until they reach the top of their support and then pinch out the growing point. Pinch out sideshoots once fruit begins to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit. Remove male flowers from greenhouse types.


Outdoor ridge types can be pinched out at the main stem after 7 leaves have formed to encourage sideshoots. Outdoor ridge types require pollination by insects - do not remove male flowers from these varieties.


When growing cucumbers, harvest regularly to encourage, long continuous production. Pick the fruits whilst young and tender before they show signs of producing seeds, as older fruits can become bitter. Harvesting cucumbers is best done early in the morning when temperatures remain cool.
