    Arkansas Little Leaf Pickling Cucumber


    (als, an, bw, cmv, pm, scab) 59 days. [U. of Arkansas, 1991.] Popular and reliable, this white-spined pickler has multiple disease resistance. Compact vines have multiple branch points and will climb a fence or trellis with ease. Small leaf size makes finding fruit easier, and the parthenocarpic flowers produce fruit under stress and without pollinators. 5 in. long fruits good for slicing and pickling. This variety may have lost Downy Mildew resistance with the emergence of new strains of the fungus, as it now varies from year to year with how well it resists DM. 60-80 seeds, depending on the variety.

    Good to start from seed in these months:

    North Florida: February-March, August-September

    Central Florida: February-March September

    South Florida: January-February, October
