Planting Tips: Tender Annual. Direct sow seeds after danger of frost has passed and soil has been warmed. Transplants are recommended and can be started 4-6 weeks before planting date. Optimal soil temp for germination is 75-85°F. Seed will not germinate in soils below 50°F. Plant outside one week after frost date to ensure soil is warm enough. Plastic mulch and row cover allow for earlier planting dates. Pick cukes daily. Plants will slow production if over grown fruits persist on vines.
