An easy-care vegetable that loves sun and water, cucumbers grow quickly as long as they receive consistent watering and warmth. Don’t let cucumbers get too large before you pick or they will taste bitter!
Cucumber plants require well-drained soil. However, make sure to provide lots of water for fast growth, especially during hot and dry weather. Cucumbers grow quickly and are at their best when picked before they get too big. Encourage new fruit development by picking regularly. Do not allow them to get overripe on the vine or they will slow down, if not cease bearing new fruit.
