Cucumber Gherkin National

Description

Gherkin National Cucumber seeds is a fast growing outdoor type which produces a mass of small slightly prickly fruits ideal for pickling.

Cucumber is a traditional salad vegetable which can be produced either in a glasshouse or outdoors. The long green types found in the shops can only be grown with the aid of a heated glasshouse, but other types are quite at home in your vegetable plot or grown earlier using cloches, cold frames or polytunnels.

Where to Sow

What to do next
