An excellent variety of outdoor cucumber, which is easy to grow and produces an abundance of full-flavoured fruit in all types of summers. This is a thick-skinned, ridge variety, which can be used for salads, salsas & sandwiches. If picked small, they can also be pickled as gherkins.
There is no need for any special pollinating techniques - simply leave all the flowers on, so the fruit can cross pollinate and set themselves.
This pack contains roughly 30 seeds.

Sow between April-May, and your cucumbers will be ready to harvest in June-October. They can be sown indoors in early April, in single pots. Or, planted outdoors in mid-May to early June, in a warm, sunny and sheltered position. These cucumbers can also be grown under glass or in a conservatory. They will need staking.
Make sure they are kept well watered, and fed weekly as soon as the first fruits appear.
