This packet sows up to 10 feet of trellised cucumbers.


Gherkins are tiny cucumbers used for pickles, and these are the best! Use as small as 1 ½" long for excellent sweet pickles, or for French cornichons ("little horns"). Slice for salads at 3"–4" long. Plants are semi-vining at 24" long and ideal for small garden spaces and containers. Disease resistant. A 2015 All-America Selections winner.
