This cucumber grows as a bush with 2-3’ vines. Produces dark green 7-8“ slicers with excellent flavor. Very productive and reliable. Plants seeds 24” apart in warm soil. Grows well in small spaces and containers. The fruit is crisp and tasty, with a satisfying bite that is just right. The perfect cucumber for snacking, salads, and sandwiches, and even for pickling when harvested small. Spacemaster 80 performs very well in a wide range of climates and is very disease-resistant. 

Cucumber seeds can be planted directly into the garden soil.

Sow seeds 2-3 weeks after the last frost date. 

Make mounds of rich soil 2' apart and plant 2 seeds on top 1/2" deep. Later thin to 1 plant per mound. Keep well watered and fertilized throughout the growing season. Mulching can be useful in conserving moisture and minimizing the presence of weeds.

This productive plant grows like a bush and is only 36 inches long, yet bears a big harvest of slender, smooth 7- to 8-inch cukes.

Harvest your cucumbers depending on their use, and therefore their size. They can over-mature and become bitter quickly. Check your crop frequently and pick them at their peak quality by gently cutting them from the plant.
