Organic Salt and Pepper Cucumber
Such crunch, such sweetness, such creaminess, such abundance! It is difficult to describe the joy it brings us to share this seed with you; truly, we love this cucumber more than words. The sweeter, smoother little sister of Silver Slicer, Organic Salt and Pepper Cucumber thrives with her Powdery Mildew as well as Angular Leaf Spot resistance, the genius of millenia of indigenous seedkeepers plus Cornell’s public plant breeding from the era of Molly Jahn and Jason Cavatorta.
And the taste is sincerely spectacular. A classic pickling cucumber size, Salt & Pepper is our favorite cucumber for fresh eating, without question. We fill our 20-gallon crock with her for pickles each season, as well! Salt & Pepper is named for the miniature black spines that dot the white & pale lemon fruits, but don’t be fooled: they’re tiny and you’ll barely notice them.
If you come to visit the farm anytime in July or August, we’ll likely hand you one as you open your car door!
Thanks to the marvelous Sarah Moller, @mylifeincrumbs, for sharing her fabulous photograph of Salt & Pepper with us!
