How to Grow Muncher Cucumber from Seed
Cucumber is a warm weather crop best if begun indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost. Plant 3-4 seeds 1" deep per individual cell in loamy, sandy, well-drained soil with a pH of 6-6.5. Seeds germinate in 3-10 days, transplanting best starts 36-48" apart in the garden once true leaves establish. Cucumbers perform best when grown on 8" tall mounds and provided a trellis to minimize crowding. Shallow roots will benefit from regular watering and top layer of mulch. Bush varieties perform well in pots and containers.
Muncher has white spines, averages 5-6" long and 2" in width. This Cucmber has vigorous vines.
Muncher Burpless Cucumber in the Vegetable Garden
Cucumbers usually have both male and female flowers. It is the female flower that produces fruit while the male flower produces primarily pollen. Sow between March and April. Plant this heirloom next to corn or radish and avoid potato, cauliflower, and basil.
Plant Muncher Cucumber seeds in the ground ½" under moist, well-draining mounded soil. In 65 days, the cucumbers will be ready for harvest. Produces an almost spineless fruit that is 6-8 inches long. Muncher cucumber does not need pollinators to fruit. Plants will grow seedless cucumber fruits. Can be planted in greenhouses to extend the growing season.
Harvesting Muncher Burpless Cucumbers
Many varieties of cucumber are ready for harvest about 60 days from sowing while smaller pickling varieties may be ready sooner. Ripe cucumbers are solid green and firm, becoming bitter and yellow if left on the vine too long. Classic slicing cucumbers are sweetest when 7-9" long, becoming starchy and grainy when reaching 12" or more. Remove fruits with scissors or a knife rather than twisting or plucking to prevent damaging the vine.
Cucumbers are a great garden vegetable to eat right off the vine, in a salad, or mixed into plain yogurt with herbs.
