Heirloom: Pickling Cucumber (Cucumis sativus)
Great for pickling and fresh snacking!
Perfect for a hot house, greenhouse or tunnel, this variety can also be grown outdoors with extra care.
Time starting indoors so that transplants will be set out 2 weeks after the last frost date. Seeds need to be started 2 weeks prior. For Southcentral Alaska this is around May 21 for a June 15th transplant date.
Cucumbers will suffer tissue damage with cool temperatures so locate the warmest micro-climate available.
Cucumbers also do not like being transplanted- do not transplant deeply, only to the soil level.
Harvest these around 3″ for snacking and 5″ for for pickling.
Sow seed 1/2″ deep and use a heat mat to aid germination. Germination is best between 80F-85F.
