MORE INFORMATION
A variety of mini cucumber, 'Petita' will give you delicious snack-sized, fruits that are great for picking on a warm sunny day. Cucumbers are packed full nutrients, they are great source of vitamins A and C, minerals, and antioxidants. Very easy to grow, this variety produces fewer female flowers and no male flowers meaning you don't have to remove any and prevent fertilisation. This stops the plant from producing bitter tasting fruits. From July to September, you can expect to be treated with yields of sweet and juicy snack cucumbers. Perfectly suited to grow in a cool greenhouse or outdoors in the garden and for the best results, support them with netting or a trellis. Delivered as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

When harvesting, cut the stem of the fruit with a sharp knife. Avoid pulling them off the plant as this will cause damage and reduce further cropping.

Care Guide

  • Prepare the soil well by digging it well rotted manure or compost.
  • Plant 45cm (18in) apart and water well until established.
  • Provide a sturdy support, such a bamboo canes, trellis or netting. 
  • Pinch out the growing tip when the plants reach the top of the support, and remove sideshoots once fruit starts to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit.
  • Your cucumbers will be ready from June to October, when they're about 15cm (6in) long. Pick regularly to encourage further cropping.
