What's so special about our cucumber?

The Iznik is the Louis Vuitton of snack cucumbers: you can't get better and tastier cucumber than this.

It does well outdoors as well as in a greenhouse, producing many smooth 10-12 cm long cucumbers. Seedless and delicious.

Sowing and growing

Cucumbers are true summer vegetables, so they can’t stand the cold. You first sow them indoors at the end of April and plant them in your garden at the end of May.

2 plants fit in 1 square patch. You’ll put them at the back of your garden box near the trellis so they can climb. The cucumber plants make long tendrils that you'll weave through the trellis net.

Cucumbers need a lot of nutrients. Give them some extra MM-Plantfood when you move them outdoors, and add some more in mid-July.

Cucumbers don’t do well right next to a patch of tomatoes, onions, or chives. So always plant another vegetable variety between them.

Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app. 

How do you use cucumber?

Snack cucumbers are delicious raw. Eat them by the fistful. Or add cubes or slices to salads.

Sour cucumber salad is popular in the Netherlands, but you can do so much more. Think Greek tzatziki, cucumber soup, or a cucumber stew with potatoes, onion, and minced meat.

No peeling necessary: the skin is thin and full of vitamins.
