Germ 6-10 days 14” long oriental, “burpless” cucumber. Fruit is 1 1/2” in diameter and deeply grooved. Growing up a trellis will produce a large number of straight cukes though some will curve and twist in the most amazing way. A nice, sweet flavor. 20 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.
We've grown this for the past 3 years and it is by far our favorite cuke. Grown on a 4 ft high fence the cucumbers are long and straight and easy to pick. No need to peel and nearly seedless. Very prolific.
