Cucumis sativus


55 Days.

25 seeds

Originating back in 1880, these vines produce large early yields of exceptional quality, sweet, seedless, crisp cucumbers. Fantastic for pickling and as a delicious addition to any salad.

Growing Directions

Sow seeds 1″ deep indoors, 3 weeks before last frost, or sow directly18″ apart when soil is warm and all chance of frost has past. If transplanting be careful not to disturb the roots, as this will shock them and will take longer to recover than direct seeding. Harvest in morning when cucumbers are 5-7″ and before they turn yellow. Trellis for support.
