This open pollinated sooyow type cucumber is easy to grow and heat tolerant. The skin is dark green with defined ridges and fine white spines that are easily removed by washing. It doesn’t need peeling. The fruit has sweet and very crisp flesh. It has a monoecious flowering habit (plant produces both male and female flowers.) It produces more female flowers on the secondary and tertiary vines, so that’s where most of the fruit will be harvested.
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Or start seeds indoors and transplant when weather warms. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation, straighter fruits, and ease of harvest.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
