Unique and fun to grow! This fascinating heirloom cucumber is from the Mideast country of Uzbekistan. Big, chunky 6 to 8-inch cucumbers turn brown when ripe. Very crisp even at large sizes. This variety is a good keeper and will store well into the fall. (65 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.
