A very early cucumber that stands out because of its internal cavity that is free of seeds, making it pleasant to eat and easy to digest. Parthenocarpic type, which means that it should be isolated from the other cucumber varieties in order to give the best possible quality fruits. Impressive yield of two fruits per internode.

CULTURAL PRACTICES: The cucumber is a climbing vine which will do well on a trellis if you have limited space or wish to produce straighter fruit. It can also be grown on the ground. Germination will begin only when planted in a warm soil, around 16º C but not below 10º C, and when there is no longer any risk of frost, which cucumber plants cannot survive. Start seeds indoors at least 3 weeks before transplanting. Reduce planting stock by using Jiffy Pots (see Gardening Aids). SOIL: Light, well-drained soil. SPACING: Put 5 to 6 seeds per mound and space them 1.5 to 3 metres apart all around. GROWING TIPS: Full sun and moisture are necessary. Before transplanting, the soil must be well watered. Use black mulch to protect seeds and to increase soil temperature. HARVEST: Pick slicing cucumbers when their size has reached about 15 to 20 cm in length. Pickling cucumbers should be picked when they are 2.5 to 7 cm long.
