How to Grow Lebanese Cucumbers

  1. Lebanese cucumbers need full sun and well-drained soil. Choose a spot in your garden that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.
  2. Loosen the soil to a depth of 30 cm (12 inches) and add plenty of organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure. This will help improve soil fertility and drainage.
  3. Sow the seeds directly into the soil once the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up to at least 18°C (65°F). Plant the seeds about 2 cm (1 inch) deep and 30 cm (12 inches) apart. If you are planting more than one row, space the rows about 90 cm (36 inches) apart.
  4. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plants deeply once or twice a week, depending on the weather and soil conditions.
  5. Lebanese cucumbers are heavy feeders and benefit from regular fertilisation. Apply a balanced fertiliser every 3-4 weeks throughout the growing season.
  6. Consider providing a trellis or other support for the cucumber vines to climb. This will help keep the fruit off the ground and reduce the risk of disease.
  7. Cucumber beetles and aphids are common pests that can damage Lebanese cucumber plants. Monitor your plants regularly and apply appropriate measures if necessary. Neem oil and insecticidal soap are effective organic options for controlling pests.
  8. Harvest your Lebanese cucumbers when they are about 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) long.  Pick the cucumbers regularly to encourage more fruit production.

Also known as Persian cucumbers, they are a popular variety of cucumber that is smaller and sweeter than traditional slicing cucumbers. They are popular in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine and are great for salads, pickling, and snacking.  Lebanese cucumbers are a delicious and easy-to-grow addition to any garden.  With a little bit of care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of fresh, crunchy cucumbers throughout the growing season.
