60-70 day. Also known as the Cucamelon. Not a true cucumber, but it has a great tart, slightly lemony cucumber flavor. It's delicate vines with petite leaves produce lots of little, 1 inch long, oblong cucumbers. They are great in salads, but can be made into excellent lactofermented pickles.
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.

These are a great addition to any summer salad and grew very well! Two years later we still have them coming up in the garden from the original plants! The only thing you have to watch with these is not to let them get overripe on the vine - I don't care for the taste when overripe! But overall a great and FUN take on the cucumber!
