Green Light Cucumber has everything you want in a mini hybrid variety. It is quick to mature at 37 days from harvest. The smooth, spineless skin is thin and extra crunchy, making it great for pickling and eating fresh. Green Light is self-pollinating and ideal for greenhouse growing; each vine can produce up to 40 4-inch fruits. Green Light was an All-American Selection winner in 2020 for its vigorous growth and taste.

Green Light Cucumber Care  

Plant cucumbers outside after all danger of frost has passed in the spring and after the soil temperature is above 60 degrees F. Space Green Light plants 12 inches apart on center, or plant in a pot with at least a 10-inch diameter. The soil needs to be well draining and nutrient rich. Amend garden beds with 1-2 inches of organic compost or composted steer manure at planting time. Green Light can reach 40 inches in height and requires support from trellising or canes before fruit begins to set. Ensure the planting site has full sun or at least 6 hours of direct sunlight to encourage heavy flowering and fruit.

Growing Green Light Cucumber

These cucumbers grow well in a greenhouse and will produce fruit long into the fall when grown under cover. Green Light Cucumbers begin to set fruit at 37 days from transplanting and 45 days from direct seeding. The F1 hybrid plants grow well in containers without external pollination. 

Plant Green Light Cucumber in a container at least 10 inches in diameter. Use a soil-based potting mix that is well draining and has organic compost or worm castings mixed in. Provide a teepee of bamboo canes or a trellis for plants to climb.   

Watering Green Light Cucumber 

Cucumbers require regular watering to form large, juicy fruits. Provide 1 inch of water a week for garden-grown plants. Container-grown cucumbers will need watering when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry. 

Feeding Green Light Cucumber 

Mix a slow-release vegetable fertilizer into the soil at planting time to release nutrients during the growing season. Cucumbers growing in containers should be fed a diluted liquid fish emulsion or seaweed extract every two weeks after the first blooms appear.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.
