60 days — 'White Wonder' cucumber fruit are normally harvested at five to six inches long when their skin is a nice, white color. Although light colored or "white" cucumbers are now uncommon in the
North American marketplace, they were once quite popular as a slicing and pickling variety.
'White Wonder' is very old cucumber that has been listed over the years under several synonyms. These include, 'Albino', 'Ivory King', 'Jack Frost', 'Landreth's White Slicing', and 'White Albino'.
However, the origination of this variety was the W. Atlee Burpee Seed Company
. They explained that their source was sent to them "... in the spring of 1890 ... from a customer in Western New York.
" The customer included a note saying, "The cucumbers are white from the time they begin to grow, and are the best I have ever seen, either for eating fresh or pickling.
and they subsequently introduced it for the 1893 gardening season.[1,2,3]
Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.
