As its name implies, Bush Crop cucumber plants are compact, dwarf, bushy and yet are very productive. This early maturing compact bush plant produces high yields of 6 to 8" green cucumbers. They are crisp, tender, and flavorful. Excellent in salads or for making dills or fancy sweet pickles. Bush cucumbers produce very nice straight cucumbers. It grows very short vines, only 1 to 2 feet long, and is one of the best varieties for container gardens and small gardens.
Bush Crop Cucumber
Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground or over the sides of containers, but for longer, straighter fruit with better support, grow the plant in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants in the garden, or one plant per container. Keep plants well-watered, and pick the fruits promptly; they can become tough if left too long on the plant.
