DESCRIPTION

24-26" semi-bush vine sets sweet, crisp dark green, long straight fruit as long as you keep them picked. Mild, sweet flavor. Super dual performer: Pick small for processing as pickles; Harvest larger for fresh slicing and spears. Perfect for container gardens! Disease resistance and tolerance are especially valuable in warmer/humid climates where comparison varieties in AAS trials succumbed to late season diseases.

CLASSIFICATIONS
HYBRID

Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
