This cucumber is popular in Europe where gardeners love the true "Cornichon" type pickle. The petite 3 to 5 inch fruit have very small white spines and are very crispy and flavorful. Short season areas will appreciate Crispy Crunchy's ability to set fruit without pollination (parthenocarpy). That means you don't need to have any honey bees working the flowers. Yields are impressive, and the vigorous vines keep growing. This kind of cucumber is hard to find in the United States, but we have taken the time to make sure our customers can have a taste of Europe without traveling to Paris. 44 days.
