Miniature White Cucumber History

Superior, sweet mini cucumber. Use when 3-4″ long, does not require peeling. Plants rarely vine more than 3 feet and can be grown in containers. Unique, but also a solid performer. High yields of tender and delicious white cucumbers. This one is a keeper.

How To Grow White Miniature Cucumber Seeds

  • Plant seeds 1 inch deep and about 2 to 3 feet apart in a row, depending on variety (see seed packet for details). For vines trained on a trellis, space plants 1 foot apart.
  • Cucumbers can also be planted in mounds (or “hills”) that are spaced 1 to 2 feet apart, with 2 to 3 seeds planted in each mound. Once plants reach 4 inches in height, thin them to one plant per mound.
  • If you live in the cooler climates, you can help warm the soil by covering the hill or row with black plastic.
  • After planting, mulch around the area with straw, chopped leaves, or another organic mulch to keep pests at bay, and also keep bush types off the ground to avoid disease.
  • A trellis is a good idea if you want the vine to climb, or if you have limited space. Trellising also protects the fruit from damage from lying on the moist ground.
  • Cover freshly planted cucumber seeds with netting or a berry basket if you have pests; this will keep them from digging out the seeds.

Preserving And Storing Miniature White Cucumber Plant

Wash the cucumbers in cold water. In a large pot, make a brine from the vinegar, 3 cups of water, and salt and bring to a boil. In the bottom of a sterilized quart jar, place a generous layer of dill (seed heads, leaves, and stems are all suitable), ½ to 1 clove of garlic, and ½ tablespoon mustard seed. Pack the cucumbers vertically into the jar until it is about half full, then add more dill and fill the remainder of the jar with cucumbers. Repeat, using all of the cucumbers and jars. Fill the jars to within ½-inch of the top with the boiling brine. Seal and process in a boiling-water bath for 15 minutes; start counting the processing time when the water starts to boil. Note: Pickles may shrivel after the processing but will later plump in the sealed jars.

Cucumber Nutrition

Cucumbers are low in calories but high in water and several important vitamins and minerals. Eating cucumbers with the peel provides the maximum amount of nutrients. They contain antioxidants, including flavonoids and tannins, which prevent the accumulation of harmful free radicals and may reduce the risk of chronic disease. Cucumbers are composed of about 96% water, which may increase hydration and help you meet your daily fluid needs. They are low in calories, high in water and can be used as a low-calorie topping for many dishes. All of these may aid in weight loss.
