Introduced in 1924 by Joseph Harris Company of Coldwater, New York, with the claim that “the remarkable thing about this new cucumber is its wonderful productiveness. For every pickle that is cut off, two or three more are produced.” These beautiful green fruits have a crisp and juicy texture and melon-like taste. It is an early pickling type and fruits are best for eating fresh, canning, or pickling when fruits are 4-5” long.
Direct seed: Sow seeds outdoors at 1" depth, in 12" diameter hills after the last frost when soil is warm. Space hills 6' apart in all directions. 3-4 plants per hill.
Transplant (recommended for shorter growing seasons): Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost for an earlier harvest. Harden off. Transplant in rows 16-18" apart, 18-24" between rows, or use hilling method above.
Performs especially well in hot climates and benefits from consistent moisture. Provide support for vines to save space.
