Germ 6-10 days Also called a Lebanese or Middle Eastern Cucumber, much of the breeding work on these varieties has been done in Israel. The large, smooth, somewhat blocky, burpless, and nearly spineless fruit can either be pickled or eaten fresh. Flavor is very mild. 25 seeds
Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant after last frost without disturbing the roots
Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees
Harvest- Pick daily to keep the harvest flowing.
Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost. Mulch and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation and takes less space than hills and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce.
These were our favorite cucumber variety. My daughter loves the mini cucumbers from the store and these are just like them when picked smaller. They are great as a larger slicer as well. Produced a lot of cucumbers all season. Will grow again!
