Cucumber suitable for outside

Got an F1 Carmen Cucumber plant. Will it grow outside ok? Says suited to cool greenhouse on the label (didn't check, was in a rush!)

    I think it's a greenhouse type.

    Go for Ridge cukes - they are bred for outside cultivation and will produce well in a reasonable summer.

    Just had one space left and grabbed this without really looking properly until I got home. It's in the ground now, guess I'll have to see how it does!

    Give it a go. I planted a greenhouse cucumber outdoors last year (like you didn’t check the label when I bought it). Got a decent crop. Though last summer was really hot.
