Product Information

‘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.

Top Tips

  • Once the fruits form, give a liquid feed every 3-4 weeks to ensure the best crops.
  • Keep moist to avoid irregular shaped fruits and mildew.
  • 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.
  • Pick often, as soon as the mini cucs are ready, to ensure a long cropping season.

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.
