I planted some heirloom 'White Wonder' cucumber seeds. They are an old heirloom variety of cucumber that is rather good looking. The plants grow long vines and were very productive over a long period of time. These cucumbers need to be picked young, if left to grow the skin becomes tough and woody and they become too bitter for my liking.
following were the days to maturity for these cucumbers. Being in
Australia, all dates are written in the format of Day/Month/Year.
White Wonder Cucumber (Cucumis sativus)
Seed Planted 16/10/2016 Day 0
Seed germinated 26/10/2016 Day10
Flowers 06/12/2016 Day 51
First harvest 01/01/2017 Day 77
these dates could change significantly if grown differently. They were
simply what happened in my garden this year. Even though, it gives a
reasonable baseline for comparison against other plants, such as the green 'space master' cucumber, which were also grown in my
garden this year.
