Question: How long does it take to grow tomatoes and cucumbers?

Answer: This, of course, will depend upon variety and whether you are starting from seed or setting out plants. From seed, ‘Early Girl’ tomatoes take 75-80 days; ‘Celebrity’, 95-100; and ‘Big Boy’, about 78. Burpless hybrid cucumbers take 55 days; old-fashioned ‘White Wonder’, 58 days; and ‘Market More’, 67 days. The actual number of days will vary with the number of sunny days and amount of rainfall.
