There is nothing more refreshing than a cool cucumber. This treasured, open-pollinated variety is still around because it is simply one of the best! Vigorous vines produce cylindrical, very straight, crisp cucumbers about 8" long. Who can resist a salad of homegrown sliced cucumber, tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella dressed with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper? Yum!

Plant Dimensions: 4'–6' vines

Variety Information: 8" long, very straight, symmetrical dark green, smooth cucumber.

Type: Monoecious, slicing cucumber

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°–90°F.

When to Start Inside: 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Cucumbers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots.

Thinning: When 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant every 12"

Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile. To increase the quality and storage time, once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse "field heat".

I planed twice and no luck. I will try one more time. Seeds from previous years all spouted.... this year they did not. Sad news.
