Type: Slicing Cucumber
Fruit size: 8-9 inches
Notable Features: Monoecious--male & female flowers on the same plant. No pollinator plant is needed.
Growth Habit: Spreading
Homeowner Growing Tips: Water deeply and fertilize regularly, as cucumbers are heavy feeders. Try to water at the soil level rather than using an overhead sprinkler to reduce mildew. Grow on a trellis or fence to save garden space. Harvest when the fruit is young for best taste. Do not divide the plants that come in one pot--grow together on a small hill or mound in the garden, or in one large container.
