I grew Mini Munch cucumbers for the first time last year and was so impressed by them that I grew them again this year.
Mini Munch, as the name would suggest, are small, mini cucumbers which are both delicious and prolific. I grew one plant in the greenhouse and one outdoors this year and didn't notice any difference between the two, so they're adaptable.
Last year, I offered two packets of seed as a giveaway to give a couple of my readers a chance to try them for themselves. Sue from Our Plot At Green Lane Allotments was one of the winners and I know she'll be growing them again next year as she too was impressed by them.
When I visisted the garden centre and picked up some bargain seed at the end of August, I also picked up an extra couple of packets of Mini Munch seed so that I could do another giveaway. These seeds are supposed to retail at £3.99 for a packet of four seeds. I always find cucumber seed expensive so the 50p seed sale is great for seeds such as these.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning one of these packets of Mini Munch seed to try, just leave a comment on this post by twelve noon on Monday the 6th of October 2014 after which, two names will be drawn at random.
As you might guess, I'll be growing this variety of cucumber again next year. It's become a firm favourite in our house.
