Put this cuke in a pot on the patio and pick perfect slicers in just two months. (Spacemaster's a winner in small gardens, too.) The compact 30-foot vines bear lots of 7-inch fruits. Plus the plants are resistant to scab and mosaic virus for extra hardiness.
After the last frost when the soil has thoroughly warmed, plant seeds in soil enriched with compost or rotted manure. Seedlings can be started indoors in 3-inch peat pots, 4 weeks before transplanting. Use plastic mulch in cool climates to retain heat in the soil.
Fertilize monthly beside each plant. Water regularly. To harvest, pick when cucumbers are 6 to 8 inches long. Pick regularly so cucumbers will continue to form. Yellow cucumbers are over-mature and should be discarded.
