Good for pickling and eating fresh, the green cucumbers have prominent black spines on the skin. Plants grow and produce quickly. Harvest the fruits while small at around 50 days for pickling, or when larger at around 67 days for slicing and eating fresh. The fruits have firm flesh and are very uniform in shape. Well adapted to container and raised bed gardening.
Seeds should be down when the soil has warmed to 70 Fahrenheit. Sow seeds every 6 inches and thinned to 12 inches apart when seedlings are 2 inches high.

The Mediterranean climate is characterized by warm dry summers and mild, wet winters. As a result, areas with this climate receive almost all of their precipitation during their winter, autumn and spring seasons, and may go anywhere from 4 to 6 months during the summer without having any significant precipitation.
