- Does Soaking Seeds In Wine Make Cucumber Sweeter?
This trial documents the results I got when testing the effect of soaking (or not) cucumber seeds overnight before planting. I used three test groups, each with the same number of seeds of the same variety of cucumbers but applied a different soaking variable to each trial. The soaking variable values are in wine overnight, in water overnight, and no soaking.
The trial is happening during the 2015 growing season. I will soak the first seeds May 3, 2015 overnight and plant them May 4, 2015. I’ll fill in the results as the season progresses so check back for the latest!
