Description How to Grow Delivery
Cucumber 'Mini Stars' F1 Hybrid produces snack size cucumbers that are great for packed lunches and summer BBQs. It can be grown either in a greenhouse, or outdoors, in a vegetable garden, or as part of a container garden, on a patio or decking area. The mini cucumbers are best harvested at 10cm (4") for the freshest flavour. If picked regularly, new fruits will grow, continuing until autumn.
We've selected rootstocks from vigorous performers and matched them with the best fruiting varieties to bring you the best possible results from a single plant!
 Height: 300cm (118"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Flowering Months Harvest Months

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.
