‘Mini Star’ is a vigorous cucumber that will provide a profusion of small, delicious snack-sized fruit with smooth, glossy dark green skins and crisp, refreshing flesh. Just the thing for picking on a warm day in the garden!
This is a grafted variety and by using a particularly strong rootstock the plants are bigger, stronger and more disease resistant than other varieties, and best of all, you can expect massively increased yields of sweet and juicy snack cucumbers all the way from June until October.
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.
‘Mini Star’ well inside a cold greenhouse or equally well outdoors in your garden beds or patio pots. For best results, support them with netting or a trellis, although they can be grown successfully at ground level.
Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting.
