European-type pickler. Early, large yields of bitter-free, cylindrical, white-spined fruit. Multiple, gynoecious flowers at each internode result in abundant harvests. Parthenocarpic variety means plants produce fruit without insect pollination and are great for high tunnel production or isolated in a field. Perfect for pickling and fresh eating.
