Product Information

'Nimrod' is a delicious variety of mini cucumber that will provide you with small, delicious snack-sized, crisp, and refreshing fruits. Perfect for picking on a warm day in the garden!

An all-female variety, 'Nimrod' will produce bright yellow flowers followed by a bountiful harvest of small, delicious snack sized cucumbers that have bumpy deep green skins that are unusually thin, with pale green flesh that is crisp and refreshing to eat.

Perfect in salads and sandwiches, or sliced lengthways for crudités and dips, and of course plucked straight from the plant and eaten straight away, these are amazing cucumbers, and you'll love growing them as much as eating them. Pick often to encourage further fruiting and any surplus will be great for pickling. These little beauties are packed with nutrients and antioxidants - low in calories and a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as minerals and antioxidants.

This variety is perfect for growing in a greenhouse and is a naturally trailing plant. Grow it up a support where it will reach approximately 3m in height and pick the tasty snack sized fruits regularly when they are young and tender. Ready to harvest June and October, picking regularly will help to encourage more fruits over a longer period.

Supplied as 6 x plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out. Reaching a height of 3m and spread of 45cm.

Top Tips

When harvesting, cut the stem of the fruit with a sharp knife. Avoid pulling them off the plant as this will cause damage and reduce further cropping.

Care Information

Growing Cucumbers

  • Prepare the soil well by digging it well rotted manure or compost.
  • Plant 45cm (18in) apart and water well until established.
  • Provide a sturdy support, such a bamboo canes, trellis or netting.
  • Pinch out the growing tip when the plants reach the top of the support, and remove sideshoots once fruit starts to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit.

Harvest

  • Your cucumbers will be ready from June to October, when they're about 15cm (6in) long. Pick regularly to encourage further cropping.
