This short and sturdy cucumber has slightly spiny skin. The spines break off easily bly gliding the hand across the skin leaving just the great tasting cucumber. Summer menus basically require this cucumber since it is so light and refreshing. Very robust and productive variety.
Sow beginning in mid-April with 2 seeds each in an 8-cell starter tray for transplants or from mid-May direct seeded in the field. Plant with a spacing of 50 ✕ 50 cm in nutrient-rich soil. Compost and mulch cover are recommended. Intercrop with any salad greens, kohlrabi, radish or, even, sweet corn in between the young cucumbers for maximizing garden space.
