Miniature White Cucumbers are an old favorite among specialist growers and home gardeners. These plants are easy to grow, and very rewarding, supplying the grower with an abundance of versatile mini cucumbers.
Cucumber plants grow rapidly, reaching typical ultimate heights of between 5 and 6 feet.
Cucumber plants are not hardy, but as they are annuals grown during spring and summer, they are well suited to growing in most climates where summers are consistently warm. If you live in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 12, you can grow cucumber plants outside.
Cucumbers are a type of fruit produced on annual vines, which are commonly used as culinary vegetables. There are over 120 different varieties of cucumber, which are cultivars of the Cucumis sativus plant in the Cucurbitaceae family.
Cucumbers are fun plants to grow because they have a vigorous habit and reward you with plenty of tasty fruits which can be added to salads or smoothies.

Cucumbers are annual plants. This means that they grow for a single season, and once the season has ended, they will die back to the ground. Unlike perennial plants, which will regrow from the underground roots when spring times rolls around again, annual plants will not re-emerge. They will live for around 80 days, the length of one season, and then cannot be regrown.
