Get a jump-start on pickling season with this early-season cucumber. Dafne Hybrid Pickling Cucumber is one of the first to start bearing heavy yields of full-sized pickling cucumbers. The 4 1/2-in., dark green, slightly spiny fruits are just the right size for whole pickles or slices. They're also good for eating fresh, as they have no bitterness. This is a parthenocarpic variety, meaning it will produce fruit without cross pollination—and if isolated from other cucumbers, it will be virtually seedless. Dafne Hybrid Pickling Cucumber was an outstanding performer in our Ohio trial garden and exhibited good tolerance to high temperatures and good fruit setting for the whole season. 50-70 DAYS.
