The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your Lemon Cucumber Seeds!
Not only very easy to grow, these round cucumbers grow as big as a baseball and are tender and extra sweet. The bright lemon yellow fruits are excellent in salads and for pickling. Try picking them at golf ball size for the best texture and flavor, or wait 65 days until they reach full size.
How to Grow Lemon Cucumber from Seed
# 1 | Once the air temperatures stay consistently between 65-75 degrees F, prepare to plant your lemon cucumber seeds outdoors. Find a spot where the lemon cucumbers will receive full sun.
# 2 | Plant 3-4 seeds about 1/2 inch deep in the soil. Keep the soil consistently moist
# 3 | Seedlings should emerge within 7-14 days. Lemon cucumbers cannot handle any frost, so if cold temperatures threaten once your seedlings have emerged, cover the seedlings.
#4| (Optional) Cucumbers love to climb, so providing trellis will save space in your garden and will also yield straighter cucumbers. Some people also pair lemon cucumbers with corn in their garden and the cucumbers will climb the corn stalks.
