DESCRIPTION: Downy mildew-resistant pickler. Citadel is the perfect cuke for a second planting if downy mildew is a concern, as it will extend the harvest by a few pickings during the time of heaviest disease pressure. The standard blocky shape at 4 1/2" long, fruit is consistent in quality. Semi-concentrated fruit set. Gynoecious. High resistance to anthracnose, angular leaf spot, and scab; and intermediate resistance to cucumber mosaic virus, downy mildew, and powdery mildew. NOTE: This variety is gynoecious, which means it will not produce the male flowers required for pollination. 52 days to maturatiy.
