Hello. All this is a unchanged heirloom cucumber that has been. Grown for hundreds of years its not gmo. Or cross breed. Mulitple times it takes around 60 to 75 days. These will get huge if you let them. But best when. 8 to 12 inches. Grow as you wood any other cucumber but if you want long straight one. We recommend trellis or some other support this variety comes with over 50 seeds in a pack. Happy growing!!!
