How to Sow and Plant

Sowing Seed Indoors:

  • Direct sowing is recommended, but to get a head start you can grow cucumbers indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost in individual biodegradable pots indoors. Sow 2-3 seeds per pot.
  • Sow seeds ½  inches deep in seed-starting formula
  • Keep the soil moist at 70 degrees F
  • Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.
  • Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, feed when they are 3-4 weeks old using a starter solution (half strength of a complete indoor houseplant food) according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • Thin to one plant per pot.
  • Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be “hardened off”. Accustom young plants to outdoor conditions by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week. Be sure to protect them from wind and hot sun at first. If frost threatens at night, cover or bring containers indoors, then take them out again in the morning. This hardening off process toughens the plant’s cell structure and reduces transplant shock and scalding.

Sowing Directly in the Garden:

  • Sow in directly in the garden in fertile, warm soil after danger of frost has passed. Cucumber seeds will not germinate in soil colder than 60 degrees.
  • Sow seeds 3 inches apart in groups of 4-6. Cover with ½ inch of fine soil.
  • Space groups 19 to 26 inches apart each way.
  • Keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.
  • Thin to 3 or 4 strongest seedlings in each group when they are 1-2 inches high.

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. 
  • Cucumbers have a shallow root system, mulches help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures.
  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • As plants grow mulch to control weeds, keep fruits off the ground and conserve moisture
  • Do not move the vines, they are easily injured.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • When cucumber seeds are direct-sown along a cucumber fence, vines can be trained to grow upright for easy picking and to save space for other plants to grow. Good companion vegetable plants are direct-sown radishes, bush snap beans, and transplants of compact herbs, peppers, eggplants and tomatoes. Attract bee pollinators by planting daisies such as sunflowers, cosmos, zinnias and coneflower, and mints such as bee balm, sage, oregano and lavender. More bees mean more chances flowers will be pollinated and develop into fruits.

Harvest & Preserving

  • Like most vegetables, cucumbers are tender and tastiest when harvested young before their seeds are fully developed.
  • Slicing cucumber varieties are generally ready for harvest when about six to eight inches long; pickling cucumber types at three to five inches- both in about 50-60 days from seeding.
  • To avoid damage cut fruit from the vine rather than pull
  • Don't allow the fruits to become overripe on the vine as this signals to the plant that the seed-development process is nearly complete and it will shut down.
  • Keep mature cucumber fruits picked to encourage further production. During hot weather cucumbers grow very fast, you may need to harvest every day.
  • Harvest the cucumber fruits early in the morning before the sun hits them for the best flavor and texture.

Cucumber, Burpless Beauty is rated 3.176470588235294 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seed cavity is huge. These cucs are not as described. Mine were about 6" and heavy, the seed cavity is huge with large seeds. That is not what the description says. They tasted OK but having to scoop out half of the cucumber isn't very rewarding. Besides, they're less than half the price when you buy the Burpee seeds at a store rather than online. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor germination rate I planted 140 seeds. I had 5 to germinate. I am very disappointed in the seed quality this year. I am gonna have to find me a new place to get my cucumber seeds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best I am sorry to have to say this but I am not impressed with these cucumbers. We were hoping to have ones with a small amount of seeds but these have about 1/3" of flesh and the rest is all seeds. For some reason, it may have been our weather this spring but they have all been this way. Also, they get very rubbery after just 2 days. Will have to search for another kind next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Cucumber! The description on these hits the nail on the head. You can't beat these for crispness and small seed cavity. I planted early and the seedlings endured a difficult start in my alkaline soil, but using Epsoma organic fertilizer with some iron sulfate, magnesium sulfate, reg. Miracle Gro on occasion and some side dressing these have produced a lot of perfect, long, tasty fruits without any bitterness and not upsetting to my delicate stomach. We have had torrential rains at times, but no disease so far either. I highly recommend these cucumbers. In the picture attached the Burpless Beauty are the long cucumbers in the bunch. There was also some Marketmore seed planted, but the Burpless Beauty tastes better, produces more and is the most crisp with smallest seeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool wet weather was this crop's downfall I planted this cucumber as a second crop late in the season. Germination rates were high, but we had such a cool, wet autumn that they didn't really flourish. I will try again next year; it's not the seed's fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cucumber! Sweet, crisp & productive plants. My garden got started late this year (end of July) so I really didn't hold out much hope for these cucumbers to mature, but they sure did. Sweeter and more flavorful than the heirloom "Lemon" Cucumbers which I also grew. The skins of Burpless Beauty are very thin, so no peeling is necessary. You can eat them right off of the vines, they are that enjoyable. Plants were productive and I can't seem to find any downside to these cukes, so next year I will definitely grow them again and they will probably be my only cucumber from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cucumbers Although only half of the seeds germinated, those that did yielded enormous crops! Nice taste, strong plants, produced till late fall.
