A reliable and heavy-cropping cucumber producing a tasty harvest of dark green, cylindrical fruits from July onwards. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Outdoor variety.
Rob says: “Once you see the tiny cucumbers on the plant, water with tomato food every week. The cucumber won’t know it’s not a tomato and this will give you bigger fruit. After the cucumber plant has produced 7 true leaves (not including the 2 you get when it sprouts), I snip off the growing tip. This makes the plant produce more side shoots, which produce more fruit.”
