I'm growing these in a pot on the deck & I can't believe we're getting mini cucumbers! I started another which I will plant in the garden to see how well that does. It sprouts pretty quickly. I start them indoors in seed starter soil. We are very happy with these.

Quick germination and growth

Growing mini cukes in Kratky method hydroponics. Grew fast and have been enjoying the cukes in salads. Much more flavorful than store bought ones and just the right size for one person. I was surprised at the strong flavor the first time I tasted them.
Very pleased with these seeds. High quality for sure.

Fast growing and taste great!

I bought the these as an experiment to grow in an indoor growing system. I’m so impressed with how well they did! And the flavor is wonderful as well.

Amazing container variety!

The Quick Snack variety is an incredible option for container gardeners. I was amazed by how quick the plant produced fruit. Germination was excellent - I was pleasantly surprised by the many strong seedlings. Despite the small size, these plants are incredibly prolific: we often had 2-3 cucumbers ready at a time on each plant. I'll be growing this every year!

Cucumis sativus A favorite in cuisine worldwide, cucumbers possess health benefits too numerous to mention. Incorporate cucumbers in your diet to aid with weight loss, as they are exceptionally low in calories (only about 8 calories in 1/2 cup), aid digestion, and rid toxins from the body. Among the more unusual qualities of the humble cuke is its ability to ease skin irritations. Use a piece of cucumber skin to soothe burns.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.
