Palace King hybrid is a rare sooyow type pickling cucumber that originated in Asia and was introduced to America. Plants are vigorous, with many tendrils to support the vines. Because the fruit grow up to 10“ long, it is best to trellis them if you want straight fruit. Plants are early to mature, and fruit have ribbing and small white spines that can be removed by washing. It is a burpless type with very good flavor, and thin skin that you don’t need to peel. 50 to 60 days.
