For a rather unusual cucumber, why not try the Martini Cucumber Plant, which produces pale white-skinned fruits as opposed to the typical green. Martini’s cukes are delicious and crunchy and don’t need to be skinned if harvested around 5 to 6 inches long. Martini is a high-yielding cultivar with a vining habit and can be harvested in as little as 50 days after planting.
Martini Cucumber Plant Care
Being frost-sensitive, the Martini Cucumber Plant should only be planted out once all risk of frost has passed and temperatures are above 65 °F. To support its growth, plant this cucumber in fertile and free-draining soil kept moist during the growing season. When growing in a row, a spacing of 18 to 24 inches apart is advisable.
Growing Martini Cucumber Plant
With support, the Martini Cucumber Plant can reach a height of around 6 feet. Cucumber plants like sun and warmth, so a south-facing and sheltered spot is ideal. If growing this cucumber from seed, it should be sown indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring is due.
The Martini Cucumber Plant is suitable for growing directly in the ground or in a large container. When container grown, a pot at least 5-7 gallons in size filled with rich compost is recommended.
Watering Martini Cucumber Plant
This Martini Cucumber Plant likes to be grown in consistently moist soil. If growing this cucumber in a container, it will require more frequent watering than if grown straight in the soil.
Feeding Martini Cucumber Plant
Supplementary fertilization is recommended to encourage prolific flowers and fruits. A high potassium or tomato feed can be applied every 10 to 14 days when the first flowers begin to appear.
