How to grow Cucumber 'Persian'

  • Full Sun

  • High

Plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water often. Keep in mind when planting that Persian is thought of as tender, so remember to wait until your soil is warm and the night time temperature is well above freezing before moving outside. Ensure your soil has a ph of between 5.5 and 6.8 as Persian is a weakly acidic soil loving plant.

Growing Persian from seed

Try to aim for a seed spacing of at least 11.7 inches (30.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.47 inches (1.2 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 16°C / 61°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Persian about 14 days after your last frost date.

Transplanting Persian

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Persian is a tender plant.

Harvesting Persian

This variety tends to be ready for harvesting by late spring.
