'Space Master' Cucumber days to maturity
We planted some green 'space master' cucumber seeds, they grew into a small shrub instead of a long vine. The cucumbers tasted good, and the plants were reasonably productive over a long season, but I am sure I can find a better variety.
The following were the days to maturity for these cucumbers. Being in Australia, all dates are written in the format of Day/Month/Year.
Seed Planted 16/10/2016 Day 0
Seed germinated 25/10/2016 Day 9
Flowers 06/12/2016 Day 51
First harvest 28/12/2016 Day 73
Obviously these dates could change significantly if grown differently. They were simply what happened in my garden this season. Even though, it gives a reasonable baseline for comparison against other plants grown in my garden this year.
