Hello all! This is an unchanged Heirloom cucumber that has been grown for hundreds of years. It is not a GMO or cross-bred multiple times. They take around 60 to 75 days to mature. These will get huge if you let them but best when 8 to 12 inches. Grow as you would any other cucumber, but if you want long, straight ones then we recommend a trellis or some other support. This variety comes with over 50 seeds in a pack. Happy growing!!!
