For salads and pickling; can grow to 17 cm in length; light green skin with white stripes, resistant to mildew.
Make sure that potted cucumbers are not sown too early. Never prick out cucumbers; plant them in a bed of soil as soon as they have formed 2 real leaves. Should only be exposed to the elements after mid-May.
When the plant has 3-4 leaves, hill the soil up around the stalk. Once the plant has formed its 5th leaf, pinch back the plant in order to let the vines develop more fully. Water in the morning; do not use fresh water rather use water that has been sitting out.
