Lemon cucumbers are petite, sweet, and easy to digest making them a favorite for sides, salads and pickles. The best planting spot will have full sun; fertile, well-drained soil; and where possible, trellising for good air circulation.
When soil temperatures are at least 70°F, about 3 weeks after your average last frost date, plant a pair of seeds 1-inch deep every 12 inches, in rows 4 feet apart. Keep warm and moist until seedlings emerge within 10 days.
Thin to 1 plant every 12 inches when plants have 3 leaves. Side dress with a low-nitrogen fertilizer, and mulch to preserve soil moisture. Just after they start flowering, cucumbers need regular, deep watering—at least an inch a week at the soil level, but not on the leaves—they are susceptible to powdery mildew which can spread quickly. Try this preventative spray: 4 parts milk to 6 parts water and a pinch of baking soda, applied to leaves once a week. It works for squash and melon plants, too.
Start to harvest when they’re about the size of small lemons, usually after 65 days. Cut stems 1/4 inch from the fruit to avoid damaging the vine. Keep them well-picked to increase yields.
