Cucumber (German Pickling) Seeds
German Pickling cucumber is a spreading vine, producing yellow tinged white fruit, pick at 8-13cm long. Can be eaten when pure white for a crispy cucumber or with a tinge of yellow for a more mature cucumber. Juicy and crisp eaten fresh, pick at young stage for pickling.
German Pickling Cucumber grows best in fertile well drained soil receiving full sun. Improve soil with manures, compost or fertilisers before planting. When sowing cover seed with 1cm of soil and keep moist until germinated. Space 40cm apart giving them enough room to run freely. Cucumbers will begin to set after 60-80 days.
