55 days. Especially bred for home pickling, these attractive, extra-tasty cukes will make perfect pickles every time! Boasting solid, crisp flesh and excellent bite, they should be harvested at about 1 1/2 inches for tiny sweet pickles, or let mature to 5 or 6 inches for hefty, robust dills and spears. At whatever size, they are firm and tender-sweet! Plants grow very vigorously over a long season, with great disease resistance for even bigger yields. Support the bountiful vines with a trellis or staking.
Direct-sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well-watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly. Pkt is 30 seeds.
