Mini Munch Giveaway

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.

  15. I totally agree with Jo's review of Mini Munch. I much preferred them to the larger ones that we grew - they were so crisp ad fresh.

    I'm grateful to Jo for introducing me to them.

    No draw entry for me as I already have my pack of seeds at the ready thanks Jo

  16. A lovely give away Jo, don't include me in the draw as I always buy a plant. I just wanted to leave a comment.

  17. Jo, if you and Sue recommend them, I have to believe they are good! Please may I be in the draw?
    My equivalent has been "Iznik F1", but I'm always ready to try something new.

  18. I would love the chance to grow these, we use alot of cucumbers as we make gazpacho and smoothies, I'm sure they would grow well in the courtyard. Recommendations are always the best xcx

  19. They sound nice I would love to try those next year, so please would you enter me into the draw. Thanks :)

  20. I've given up growing cucumbers as they seem to do best in a greenhouse. Your review has made me curious to try these, especially with a second endorsement from Sue! Include me in your draw please, Jo.

    1. I did send you the seeds, you won my giveaway last year. I wondered how they'd done for you so I'm pleased you were impressed too.

    2. So glad that riddle is solved,I knew I won them but wasn't sure who off, yes they really performed well and are still growing, so tasty too so thank you for that!xxx

  24. Looks so interesting! I hope I can find the seed here.

  25. These do indeed sound good Jo and I might be tempted to have a go with them in the future. Please do not enter me for the draw though. I may have to cut down on seed sowing next spring and if I do I may not sow cucumbers.

  26. Ever since I've known about your 50 seed bargains at the end of season I've gone to local garden centres to see if they offered this, but no. Oh well, I shall keep looking for bargains. Cucumber did excellent up at the community garden I volunteer at, in the greenhouse so I'd be keen to keep it going.

  27. I'm still picking our cucumbers - grown outside.

  28. I will keep my eyes open for them.
