Now you can grow delicious cukes on the patio, porch, or any other sunny spot. This All-America Selection is compact enough for containers, yet bears heavily. And the fruit is absolutely delicious. The cukes are dark green and straight, heavy for their size and absolutely bursting with flavor. Pick them small (3 inches or so) for pickling, or let them reach full size for slices and spears.
Saladmore has a bushy rather than a vining habit, reaching just 2 feet wide. Let it spill over the sides of pots, tubs, and even baskets, extending your vegetable garden far beyond the soil of the backyard. And despite its petite size, Saladmore is quite productive: the average plant will produce 10 to 12 cukes.

Saladmore Bush Cucumber Seeds
Direct sow the seeds in a sunny spot in the garden or in containers after all danger of frost is past. For an earlier crop, you can also begin the seeds indoors, transplanting when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground or loll 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 Saladmore well-watered, and pick the fruits promptly; they can become tough if left too long on the plant.
