This outstanding blonde slicing cucumber is the toast of the town and makes a great all-around addition to any garden. Best when 5-6 inches long, Martini has a sweet, bright flavor from baby size all the way up to 9 inches. Its flesh has a great juicy crunch with very few seeds. Smooth white skin makes the fruit easy to spot come harvest time and also earns lots of compliments at the table. When picked regularly, Martini is staggeringly prolific. 50-55 days.

Care: Space 2-3′ apart in all directions. Cukes need heat and well-drained soil: plant in full sun in raised beds or hills.
