58 days. A popular pickling cucumber, Wisconsin SMR 58 produces a profusion of 15cm (6") long and 6cm (2 1/2") wide fruits that are medium green, crisp and straight.
Trellised plants can be grown 8" apart in the row, with 24" between the rows. This makes for the most efficient use of space in the garden, but be careful to not shade other plants that need sunlight. Consider adding peas or beans to share the trellis.
Alternatively, plant three cucumbers on a mound or “cucumber hill”, built by digging a hole 12" in diameter and 12" deep. Half fill the hole with compost and then return the soil to the hole, leaving a slightly raised mound. Plants will need room to sprawl up to 3 feet around the hill. Use this space early season for fast growing crops you will harvest before cucumber plants are full size.
