Picolino Cucumber (F1 Hybrid 52 Days)

Mini English cucumber with tender, thin skin; and a crisp and sweet taste all from 4” fruits that can be grown in the garden or a green house. It will be hard not to eat all these little guys straight from the vine but with the high yields from the all-female flowers (parthenocarpic, fruits set without pollination) you will be inundated. Keep picking continuously for a long harvest. Resistant to: Mosaic Virus, Vein Yellows Virus, Powdery Mildew, Scab, Target Leaf Spot.

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 the 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 the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the 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 allow 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.

Love these little guys!

Love the picolino cucumbers, but they don’t produce many cukes on each plant. I’ll just have to plant more next year!

No bitterness

Grew these along with my standard straight 8s in Iowa. These germinated well, but the seedlings were a bit fussier about taking off. The best part of these was that after temps got up into the 90+ range, these stayed perfectly tasty without the bitterness.
