Description

This newly developed, white-skinned pickling or salad cucumber has powdery mildew resistance and is similar in size to Boothby's Blonde, but has improved flavour and disease resistance. With a crisp texture and a good heirloom flavor, it was carefully bred to give the combination of disease resistance and a quality heirloom flavor. This variety is one of the first modern vegetables bred specifically for organic production.

Sowing Advice

Best direct-seeded at about the time of last frost, but can be started earlier as transplants, provided the seedlings are set out before becoming rootbound. Cucumbers are heavy feeders and thrive in rich soil full of organic matter. They can be trellised if desired. A bit of afternoon shade is helpful in very hot summer-areas. Supply abundant moisture and keep picking mature fruit.
