This heirloom cucumber is a personal favorite, being very productive and delicious. Long, slim fruit — with few seeds — that are very crisp and mild. A great Japanese variety for home use or farmers’ markets. (68 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.
