Originally grown in Royal Oak Michigan and later introduced commercially by J.B. Rice Co. in 1910. This medium green 7-8″ long 2″ wide cucumber is a delicious slicer. Plants are vigorous and dependable and will produce continually if harvested often.
Sow seeds 1/2″ deep indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost. Transplant or sow direct 6-8″ apart in full sun, when ground is warm and all chance of frost has past. If transplanting be sure not to disturb the roots or use a compostable pot to start seeds in. Plants will benefit from added manure and a trellis to climb will lend to higher yields.
