(Cucumis sativus) Popular heirloom variety originating in 1877. Vigorous vines produce a bounty of 3-7 inch cucumbers with a nice uniform shape and smooth, green skins. Excellent flavor and crispness. Perfect for pickling. 55 days to harvest. 25 seeds per packet.
CULTURE: Direct sow seeds in spring after danger of frost has passed. Seeds should be sown 2-3 per hill with hills spaced at least 3' in all directions. Alternatively, seeds may be sown along a trellis with 12-24" final spacing between plants. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 3-10 days. Harvesting regularly promotes yield.
