60 days — 'Delikatesse' cucumbers are a pale-green color with small warts and reach about ten inches in length. They deliver an interesting, almost citrus flavor.

A dual-purpose variety originating in Germany, they are used for pickles when the fruit are small and then as a slicing when they are allowed to reach a larger size. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Cucumbers grow best with long, hot, humid days with maximum sunshine and warm nights. Plants are extremely susceptible to frost. Sow seeds outside only after danger of frost when soil has warmed. Make a second sowing 4 to 5 weeks later for a late summer or early fall harvest. For an earlier harvest and to reduce the threat of insect damage to seedlings, start a few plants indoors in individual pots (or trays with separate compartments) about a month before your last spring frost date.

Sowing: To seed in rows, plant seeds 1 inch deep and about 6 inches apart. To plant in hills, plant four or five seeds in 1-foot-diameter circles set 5 to 6 feet apart.
