This mini cucumber produces an abundance of delicious, crispy smooth-skinned cucumbers. Its compact growth makes it perfect for growing in large pots. Cucumber is easy to grow, but it loves water and sun, which is why you need to be consistent with watering and warmth. Therefore, cultivate Baby F1 in a greenhouse or warm outdoor area with nutrient-rich, well-drained soil. Also, make sure to regularly water and fertilize your cucumbers. 

This variety does not need pollinating and it is also resistant to mildew. Harvest the mini cucumbers often, at a size of approximately 8-10 cm. If the cucumbers grow too large, they might become bitter.
