|55 days. Making pickles at home is easy with Homemade Pickles. This plant has excellent disease resistance, very high yields, and is ready to harvest early. The 4 foot compact vines produce cucumbers for quite a long period; harvest anywhere from 1½" to 5" long. Perfect interior texture for pickles, but can also be eaten fresh. Excellent container variety.|
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperatures are warm, at least 65° F.
When to start inside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost.
Harvesting: Do not let cucumbers get too big - plants stop producing if there are overly mature cucumbers on the vine. Pick regularly at 1½" to 5" long. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse field heat; this increases quality and life of picked fruit.
