Climbing Cucumbers - Knowledgebase Question

PRINCE FREDERICK, MD
Question by CATTER69

I have a trellis 4 feet high and 6 feet wide. Will that be enough to support the plant and will the cucumbers get too heavy for the vine to suspend them in an upright position? Also please let me know of another climbing vegetable?

Cucumbers are usually self supporting on the vine when trellised (especially if you pick them often and do not let them get too big and old), but larger vegetables may need support. You may find this article, "Trellising Vine Crops", http://www.garden.org/qanda/ng... helpful. Other vegetables that can be grown on a trellis include tomatoes, peas, pole beans, gourds, and so on.
