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)
Each packet contains approximately 15 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Plants are best direct-seeded two weeks after the last spring frost date, but can be started earlier indoors as transplants. Wait for warm days and soil temperatures above 60˚F before planting outside. Plants are heavy feeders and thrive in rich soil full of organic matter. They can be trellised if space is limited.
Supply plenty of moisture and keep plants mulched to prevent soil from drying out between waterings. Pick fruits when they are about 4-8 inches long. Harvest often so that they don’t become woody and tough. Fruits can be difficult to spot among the vines and foliage.
