Pickling Cucumber Seed Planting Information:

Cucumbers don't do well if roots are disturbed, so it is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds in soil, 2 to 3 weeks after last frost, when soil and air temperature is at least 60 F. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Cucumbers can also be grown in rows instead of hills, spacing 24" apart in rows 24 - 36" apart. Trellised plants can be grown as close as 10" apart. Cucumbers only take 55 to 65 days to maturity, so you can have multiple harvest by growing 2 to 3 weeks apart. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to 6 ft.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

The soil should be continuously moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get ½" water per week.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Snip the stems with garden scissors when cucumbers are 2" long for pickling varieties. Harvesting frequently encourages more production. Pick daily to prevent fruit from becoming too large. Over ripe cucumbers will have a bitter taste.

CMV – Cucumber Mosaic Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Cucumber Mosaic Virus is a world-wide virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, eggplants, gourds, peppers, pumpkins, spinach, squash, tomatoes, and watermelons. Symptoms include stunted or dwarfed plants, mottling, yellowing, distortion, and wrinkling of the leaves with the edges curling downward, and reduced growth rate and yields. The symptoms on leaves known as "shoestring" effect causes young leaves to appear narrow. The leaves will die and fall off, leaving part or most of the plant bare. The virus causes cucumbers to turn pale and gray, become bumpy and oddly shaped, and have a bitter taste. The virus causes peppers to have severe leaf damage with mosaic and necrotic rings. The peppers may have rings and spots. Tomato plants are usually stunted and have poorly shaped leaves and can cause partial or total crop loss. Plants infected with the virus have little or no marketable fruit. The virus can reduce yields and fruit quality. It is spread by aphids, seeds, and weeds. The virus overwinters in many perennial weeds. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. This virus cannot live in extremely dry conditions. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 79-89 F when aphid infestation is great. Symptoms usually begin to show in June. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Keep the fields weed free as infected perennials can harbor the virus. Proper tillage practices may be helpful in managing the disease. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. Spraying the tomato plants with mineral oil can delay the aphids from spreading the virus.The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

PRSV – Papaya Ringspot Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Papaya Ringspot Virus is a virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, and squash. Papaya ringspot virus is primarily a problem in the southern and western regions of the United States. Symptoms include yellowing and vein-clearing of young leaves, yellow mottling of the leaves, distinctive ringspot patterns on the fruit, and fruit quality, particularly flavor, is adversely affected. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. It is only spread by aphids. There is no cure for papaya ringspot disease. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

WMV – Watermelon Mosaic Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Watermelon Mosaic Virus is a virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, gourds, pumpkins, squash, and watermelons. Watermelon mosaic virus is primarily a problem in the southern and western regions of the United States. Symptoms include stunted or dwarfed plants, yellow or light green mottling, blistering, marginal yellowing, leaf distortion, and reduced growth rate and yields. Losses of 50 percent or more in yield and fruit quality may occur. The fruit frequently show color breaking and warts. It is only spread by aphids. Symptoms usually begin to show in June. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Plastic mulches have been shown to reduce losses. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

ZYMV – Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus is a world-wide virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, gourds, pumpkins, squash, and watermelons. Symptoms include stunted or dwarfed plants, mottling, yellowing, distortion, blistering, and wrinkling of the leaves, and reduced growth rate and yields. The virus can cause total crop lose. The symptoms on leaves known as "shoestring" effect causes young leaves to appear narrow, and fern-like appearance of the leaves. The virus causes cucumbers to become bumpy and oddly shaped, and have a bitter taste. Cantaloupes & melons and watermelons are malformed and often develop deep cracks. Squash and pumpkins can develop knobby areas. Plants infected with the virus have little or no marketable fruit. The virus can reduce yields and fruit quality. It is spread by aphids and seeds. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Keep the fields weed free. Proper tillage practices may be helpful in managing the disease. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. Using transparent or silver plastic mulches have been shown to repel aphids and delay the virus from spreading. Ladybird beetles can be effective at naturally controlling aphid populations. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.
