The Table Cukes, which are generally used for slicing in salads and garnishing, are charac- terized by their small white spines, and generally grow in a thick and long shape.
The Pickle varieties, which are also field grown, are the smaller varieties, which are usually harvested at approximately 2 inches. Hot House varieties, as the name suggests, are grown under artificial conditions, and well adapted to culture under artificial heat and humidity controls.
