As with all fruiting plants, it’s important to pick a spot that gets full sun. Cucumbers need at least eight hours of direct sunlight a day to form fruit. You can grow cucumbers in either a raised bed or a large container.
Most cucumbers are typically ready to harvest about 60 days or so after planting from seed. It’s best to harvest cucumbers before they get too large and bitter-tasting. Plus, leaving fruits on the plant tells it to stop forming new fruits.
