An old heirloom cucumber dating back to 1880. Vigorous vines produce large yields of smooth, green fruit. It is excellent for pickles, very crisp and good quality. A very popular variety at the turn of the century. (50 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25-35 seeds.
Best direct-seeded at about the time of last frost, but can be started earlier as transplants, provided the seedlings do NOT become root bound.
Cucumbers are heavy feeders and thrive in rich soil full of organic matter. They can be trellised if desired. Afternoon shade is helpful in very hot areas. Supply plenty of moisture and keep mature fruit picked.
