Description

Pickle heaven. Vigorous vines produce large yields of smooth, symmetrical bright green fruit. Excellent for pickles — very crisp, thin-skinned and of high quality. Plant in compost-amended soil. Mulch and keep well watered. Trellis the vines for good air circulation, which can double as light shade for heat-sensitive crops like lettuce. Pick daily to keep new blooms/cukes forming.
