Description

Profi F1 Gherkin is a 100% feminine flowering hybrid pickle variety. Profi F1 is a parthenocarpic hybrid with seedless fruits when grown isolated.

How do I sow Gherkins?

Sow pickle seeds indoors from April for in 8cm pots. When it is warm enough outside, you can sow the Parisian pickle in a greenhouse or outdoors in the garden.

Plant out

The Gherkin plants can be planted outside from mid-May. Gherkins should be out of the wind, preferably put them in a sheltered spot. Plant two Gherkin plants together every 50 cm. The tendrils can be fed back or pruned to keep the crop in check. Gherkins are best grown with some support, use a piece of chicken wire or run them up along cords.

Harvesting

Gherkins can be harvested from mid-July to mid-September. One Gherkin plant produces many fruits, up to 20 pieces. The Gherkin yield in the greenhouse is higher than the outdoor cultivation. When the Gherkin have reached a nice size, you can pick them. Picking will then produce new fruits.
