SWEETEST, BURPLESS ENGLISH variety! Yields bumper crops of bitter-free, seedless (if grown in isolation from other cucumber plants), 12-14"L x 2¼" dark green cukes. Tender and crisp with thin, smooth skins. Sets fruit without bee pollination, making it a great choice for greenhouse growing! If trellised, the fruit will grow perfectly straight and smooth. Perfect for Fresh Markets and Home Gardens
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
Plants that produce long, seedless cucumbers which means they yield cucumbers without pollination. These cucumber plants must be grown in greenhouses to exclude bees because pollination causes their cucumbers to become misshapen and bitter.
