Picolino’s are great tasting, 4 to 5 inch long picking cucumbers. They are extremely prolific and a great way to get tons of snack sized cucumbers out of a small space in the garden. They have a dark green, thin skin. Persian type cucumber.
Cucumber: Cucumbers are an amazing garden staple! Whether you are adding them to salads, making soups and sauces, or just snacking on them right out of the garden, fresh cucumbers can’t be beat. While originally for East Asia they are grown around the world and have be grown as a delicacy from the Romans onwards.
Growing Tips: Cukes want warm, well drained soil and I usually recommend making a mound about 1 foot high and 18 inches across and planting two or three cukes in each mound in order to ensure the drainage needed. Use a good mulch to ensure there is consistent moisture in the soil.
