Cucumber - Homemade Pickles - Cucumis sativus

Tender Annual Heirloom. Heavy-yielding variety that produces small, crisp, green,
cucumbers for pickling or salads. The fruit grows to 5"-6" with white spines and medium green skin. The solid cored cucumbers should be harvested regularly to maintain good production throughout the season. Plants are disease-resistant and will maintain quality well over the season.

Soil and Water: Plants need well-drained soil and will benefit from added compost or well composted manure. Watering should be moderate until flowering and then heavier as the fruits develop up until harvest

Planting and Growing: Cucumbers benefit from good air circulation and a mulch to keep moisture even. Sow indoors 3 weeks before last frost. If direct seeding, plant 5-6 seeds per hill two weeks after the last frost. Thin to the strongest 3 plants in hill. Plants can be trellised or run on the ground.

Harvesting and Storage: Fruits can be harvested at any desired size, from 1.5" - 5" and eaten fresh or made into pickles. Pick continuously to keep vines productive.
