These white-skinned, black-spined pickling cucumbers are great for container gardens. Production is good and starts very early on bush-type plants that seldom run over three feet long. Delicious fresh, this variety has none of the bitterness that has come to be associated with many of the white-fruited types. (50 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.
