A very rare Chinese heirloom cucumber. This was our largest yielding variety ever — just a few plants produced hundreds of fruit! Attractive, yellow-orange cucumbers are 10-inches long and are as crisp as an apple; the young fruit is green. Very mild and delicious, great for slicing or for pickles. (65 days)
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.
