This reliable and succulent F1 variety does not need insect pollination to set its crop of dark green, slightly speckled cylindrical fruit. This makes it ideal for growing in polytunnels as well as outside when the weather is so unpredictable. The first fruit set very early in the season and should be picked regularly to encourage further production.
Very heavy feeders, they need soil heavily amended with manure, compost, or other source of lots of nutrients. Sow in place in full sun after last frost; or start a couple weeks earlier indoors, but never let the transplants become root-bound, and do not disturb the roots in transplanting. Seed are sown up to one inch deep. Grow 4-5 feet apart.
