70 day. Still one of the most commonly grown slicing cucumbers, it produces long, straight, almost seedless cucumbers that are great for slicing for salads.
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.

We got these cucumbers for our very tiny garden (approximately 15 square feet). I started the seeds indoor, and all but 2 sprouted. I had so many seedlings that I had to give most of them away since I didn't have room to plant them! The cucumbers themselves were crisp and delicious, perfect for summer treats and salads. The only issue we had was likely due to our space limitations; the cucumbers themselves didn't have enough room to spread out, and we had some discoloration and misshapen fruit at the bottom of the plants. We saved one cuke for seeds, which we will be planting this year.
