Germans are the true masters of pickled foods, and cucumbers are no exception. This cucumber variety is naturally selected to meet their needs, and if you're a fan of traditional home-pickled produce, you will love it too. Add some pearl onions, juniper berries, and tarragon to your pickle vinegar to get the authentic flavour that's still coveted all over the world.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Start your seeds in spring. Direct sowing is the best solution, but if you want to get an early start, you can sow them in pots and plant them out after the last frost. Plant your seeds no more than 10mm deep, and keep the soil moist. Water deeply, and then let just the surface of the soil dry between waterings to keep them moist but not soggy.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest your cucumbers in the mornings when they are at their firmest and juiciest. Cut them from the vine to prevent breakage. Don't let the seeds mature, even if you have more cucumbers than you need, as that tells the plant it can stop producing.
