  1. A Description of Cucumber

    History: Originating in India, cucumbers have been cultivated there for over 3000 years and are still a diet staple. They were first introduced to Britain in 1573 and came to North America with early explorers. Cultivation: Cucumbers are heat-loving plants. Direct sow 1/2" deep when the soil has warmed up. Thin seedlings to 12 - 36" apart. Trellising the vines saves space. Companions: beans aid growth; nasturtiums deter insect pests; radishes deter cucumber beetles.
