PLANTING

Cucumis sativus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and pick every day to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation, takes up less space and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

    Most Productive!

    These are hands down the most productive pickle cukes I've ever grown in the 25 years I've been growing them. These have earned a permanent spot in my veg garden.

    Reliable,tasty pickles

    I have grown these picklers for years now and have always been well pleased by the quality and quantity of blocky perfect pickles. They thrive in our heat and humidity in the mid south! I grow them up on concrete wire cages with four or five seeds planted around each one. A few cages gives me plenty for making pickles for home use. The smaller leaves help finding the cukes and share the light better crowded on the cages.
