Good setting even in cool weather
Small smooth-skinned fruits
Out Of Stock
Outdoor type.Setting is good even in cooler summer conditions with this outdoor version of 'Cucino'. Cucumber 'Green Fingers' produces an abundance of short 10cm (4") smooth-skinned, mid-green fruits which are firm and crisp with a lovely flavour. Regular picking of the fruits while they are small will ensure the best quality and flavour, as well as the maximum yield. This climbing variety is best grown against a support outdoors. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 45cm (18").
Height Up to 300cm (118in)
Spread Up to 45cm (18in)

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.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
