If you want fresh cucumbers without the waxy buildup of those in grocery stores, look no further than your back yard or patio for Bush Champion Cucumber. This slicing cucumber plant produces large, 11-inch long cucumbers on a compact plant. Instead of finding spots to train long vines, you can plant Bush Champion in a container or raised bed and have a neat but productive cucumber plant. The fruit matures about 55 days after planting.

This little cucumber hybrid was bred to resist mosaic, a virus that can affect cucumbers and stunt growth. The plant has proven that it produces lots of flavorful fruit in a small space. It is more adaptable than most cucumbers because of its size. You can plant it near other plants, on a deck or in a vegetable garden. Since it is compact and produces large yellow flowers (that turn into cucumbers), you can use it in a front yard garden, too. As long as it gets lots of sun, the plant will be happy and so will you.

Bush Champion Cucumber Care

Cucumbers need heat, so don't plant Bush Champion Cucumber until a few weeks after your last spring frost and when temperatures reach 70 degrees in the daytime for best results. Cucumbers like warm, fertile soil that has been amended with organic matter like compost. The bushy plants spread to about 2 feet wide, so be sure to leave at least a foot between the center of plants in your garden. Other than watering, all you have to do is keep an eye out for bugs and harvest delicious cucumbers.

Growing Bush Champion Cucumber Plants

About 55 days from planting, you should have fruit large enough to harvest. Bush Champion Cucumber won't require the kind of hunting gardeners must do for vining plants; you should be able to spot all ripe fruit. Add straw mulch to the ground under the plants once soil is warmer. It will keep the fruit clean and help keep ground-crawling pests off the leaves. Cucumbers are easy-care vegetable plants. You should have delicious cucumbers to harvest for family meals less than 2 months after planting Bush Champion.

Bush Champion Cucumber is a perfect container vegetable for a kitchen garden. Place the pot in the sunniest spot available outside your kitchen door. Any container you choose should be able to support that width as well and be deep enough for the plant to form healthy roots, so about 12 to 24 inches wide at the top and at least 10 inches deep.

Watering Bush Champion Cucumber

Once planted, water Bush Champion Cucumber regularly, but only when needed. For example, don't water after a nice rain. Cucumbers like about an inch of water a week.

Feeding Bush Champion Cucumber

Add a water-soluble vegetable fertilizer around the soil a few times through the season. If the soil is fertile, you don't have to do much for this plant to grow and produce quickly.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
