Germ 6-10 days
Looking for a great pickling cuke? Then these are for you. During harvest time each plant brings forth petite, tender fruits that grow great in hot climates and have a good keeping quality. Little Tyke has primarily female flowers so it is best planted along with another early cuke. 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.
