Growing Baby Cucumber Seeds

Here are a few guidelines for growing miniature cucumber seeds:

  • Sowing time: Plant the seeds outdoors after the last spring frost. You only need to plant them indoors if you live in a region with an extremely short growing season.
  • Soil temperatures: Your soil should ideally lie between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Cucumbers thrive in relatively warm temperatures. 
  • Soil conditions: Your plants' soil should be well draining with a pH around 6.5 and 7.0 and be fertile — add some aged manure or compost to enrich the soil before planting.
  • Harvesting: Don’t keep your baby cucumbers on the vine too long because consistent harvesting encourages flowering and new fruit. Most miniature cucumbers take between 45 to 50 maturation days.

Sunlight: Small cucumbers do well when getting maximum sunlight. They require between six to eight hours a day.
