This variety gives you a thick, tasty, foot long cucumber! It grows 2 ½ inches in diameter and contains a crunchy dark-green skin and light green, juicy flesh. It makes an excellent addiction to salads, veggie trays or just snacking. Preferred by market growers as a “straight pack” sort for shipment to high grade markets and has been used by innumerable breeders to impart similar ideal length, dark green color, and excellent flavor.

Growing Instructions

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.
