Cucumber Petita


SKU: 370085 Category:


'Petita' is a great variety of mini cucumber that will provide you with a profusion of small, delicious snack-sized, crisp, and refreshing fruits. Just the thing for picking on a warm day in the garden!
Very easy to grow, 'Petita' has been developed to produce fewer female flowers and no male flowers. This means you no longer have to remove any flowers and prevent fertilisation and in turn, prevent bitter tasting fruits. From July to September, you can expect to be treated with yields of sweet and juicy snack cucumbers.
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.
'Petita' is well suited for growing in the UK climate and will tolerate lower temperatures unlike other varieties. It will grow well inside a cool 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 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting. Reaching a height and spread of 1m.
