2005-LO Cucumis sativus
(SLICER/PICKLER) 60 days.
Yes—a reliable little pickler that has all the qualities you’re looking for! Dark green skin, crisp white flesh, and vines that are quite compact at 3′-5′ long. Good crunchy cuke for salads, too! An heirloom variety originating in Russia, where it was favoured in small gardens around Moscow (often at seasonal second homes, or dachas) for its space-saving and reliable production.
