This delicious mini cucumber produces tasty and crispy fruits with smooth skin, making it ideal to enjoy raw. Iznik is a mini cucumber variety that is suitable for cultivation in greenhouses or warm outdoor areas. Its compact growth makes it perfect for growing in large pots, preferably with nutrient-rich, well-drained soil that retains moisture. 

Water and fertilise regularly for optimal growth. This variety is resistant to mildew and does not need pollinating. Harvest often, when the cucumbers are approximately 10 cm. If mini cucumbers grow too large, they may become bitter.
