How to Grow

Pot up young plants and grow them on until they are large enough to be transplanted. Maintain a minimum temperature of 15c (60F). Ensure that you grow Cucumber ‘Quick Snack’ in bright light and keep the compost moisture but not wet, to allow the fruit to mature.

Provide some support for your ‘Quick Snack’ cucumber to keep it upright and pinch out the plant when it reaches the top of the supports. 

For best flavour, harvest the fruit when it is 1.5 to 2.5 in./4 to 6 cm long.
