Plant Information
Crisp, delicious cucumbers are one of the easiest and most rewarding garden vegetables, requiring little work but giving you so much in return. From the short, plump picking varieties to the longer slicing types, they're all incredibly easy to grow. They're also very heavy yielders, so there's always plenty to share! Little in size but big in flavor, Mexican Sour Gherkin cucumbers resemble tiny watermelons and taste like classic cukes splashed with refreshing lemon juice. Their small size and cool, crisp texture make them ideal for salads, snacking, and pickling. Whether grown from a hanging basket, on a trellis, or directly in the garden, it's best to direct sow Mexican Sour Gherkins. However, if you live in a cooler area with shorter summers and want to get a jump start, you can start the seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost is anticipated. Whether transplanting seedlings or sowing directly into your garden or container, the soil should be at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
