45-50 days. This pickling cucumber originated in Russia, where its short vines, only reaching 5 feet, made it perfect for the small dacha gardens. It is also easy to grow and an excellent choice for those in cool climates or those with size constraints.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1/2 inch
Hill Spacing: 3-4 feet
Direct seed in hills of 4-6 seeds after danger of frost has passed. You can start indoors but do so only 3 weeks before transplanting. Be sure to use larger pots because the roots do not like to be disturbed.
