LITTLE TYKE CUCUMBER (F1 Hybrid, 35 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

Planting:

Germ 6-10 Days

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.

    Delicious eating cuke

    We enjoyed these cukes for eating and pickling. The flavor is wonderful for either and the size is great for munching in the garden or otherwise. Pick daily as rocommended 'cause you will find some every day. They are prolific but for us stopped producing suddenly.

    Oops...

    ....only 3 seeds germinated. But the good news is: Plants are healthy. No fruit yet.

    Hi Skip, I am so sorry you had such poor germination but I am glad you have healthy plants! Regardless, we do guarantee much better germination and I would be happy to provide a replacement packet or a refund or credit, whichever you prefer. Please let me know what I can do for you.

    Love the small plant size

    Enjoying an abundance of nice sized cucumbers from a plant that doesn't take over my garden.

    Best pickling cucumber

    I have grown Little Tykes for years. It is the only one I will use for pickling. Very good producer.
