The five cucumber plants in the tomato house are starting to produce the first crop of delicious, sweet, juicy, small cucumbers. When thumbing through the Thompson & Morgan catalogue, choosing our seeds for the year, the description drew our attention, 'Cucumber ‘Zeina’ is an excellent smooth-skinned hybrid cucumber, specifically bred to provide lots of mini cucumbers that are best harvested when 20cm (8") long. This RHS AGM variety is suitable for indoor and outdoor cultivation'. Judging by the vast number of flowers and tiny cucumbers still to come, these five plants should keep us supplied with a delicious crop all summer, a highly recommended variety.
