CUCUMBER GHERKIN NATIONAL
A very fast growing open pollinated variety which will produce a mass of small, prickly fruits that can be picked and eaten in the normal way or, as the name suggests, pickled to make your own gherkins. Known as a 'Ridge Type' it is suitable for outdoor growing, frame growing or growing in a polytunnel or greenhouse. A high yielding, vigorous vine, train plants up a wire or canes. Outdoor varieties can be sown after last frosts when the ground has warmed up.
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. A bit of afternoon shade is helpful in very hot summer-areas. Supply abundant moisture and keep picking mature fruit.
