This pickling variety is small garden and container friendly. The early producer is also a good slicing cucumber, with 4-5″ straight fruits. Plant in rows 12″ apart or on elevated hills with 2-3 plants per hill. Cucumbers also grow well on a trellis or a fence and can be picked as needed, while reducing the space needed in the garden. Keep over-mature fruits removed to encourage new growth.
This is a great choice that bears sizeable fruits on a very compact plant that works well in containers and small gardens. Especially strong, bushy plants bear truly tasty, medium-sized tomatoes great for sandwiches and slicing. The heavy foliage of this hybrid helps protect tomatoes from sunburn. Plants produce from 90 to 120 tomatoes each over a two-month harvest period. Keep the big harvest going with successive, monthly plantings through July for a fall harvest. Plants are strong and upright, but will still do best in a small cage or on a stake for support
