These slender cucumbers reach 12 inches in length and are only 1 1/4 inches thick. They are dark green, moderately ribbed and high spined. Crisp, with few and small seeds, they're wonderful for salads and great for making sweet chunk and bread'n butter pickles. Vines are strong, vigorous and suitable for trellising so they can be grown in a small space. This F1 hybrid produces uniform sized fruit in abundance. Mature in 58 days.
This cucumber is also available in the Slicing Cucumber Collections: 1 packet of each and 1 Jumbo packet of each.
