The most important aspect of cucumber maintenance is making sure they receive constant watering! They require at least one inch of precipitation every seven days (or more, if temperatures are particularly high). The fruit will have a sour flavor if it is irrigated inconsistently.
How do you water cucumber plants?
Simply maintain a steady moisture level in the soil by adding one inch of water every week (more if temperatures sizzle and rain is scarce). Fruit that has either insufficient or irregular moisture content will either have an unusual shape or a bad flavor.
How often do you water cucumbers in raised beds?
Every week, cucumbers need an additional one to two inches (2.5 to 5 cm) of water. At first, it’s enough to only make sure the ground is moist so the seeds may sprout. After that, examine the moisture content of the soil to determine how often it has to be watered. During the spring, you should water your plants once every two to three days.
