PARISIAN PICKLE CUCUMBER (50 days) (HEIRLOOM)

French Heirloom – 1880
An improved bourbonne type, this cucumber was used extensively in the commercial production of both cornichons and gherkins in the late 19th century. Fruits are longer and thinner than pickling cucumbers in this country but well covered with little bumps (spines). Can grow to 6” with a slight curve on lengthy vines. Also a fine slicer.

20 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.

    Seeds great so far

    I started these seeds in mid-January and they all germinated. They're almost big enough to transplant into the garden. Looking forward to tasting them soon.
