Comments: Dual purpose slicer/pickler features more disease resistance than any other cucumber ought to have. Much darker green than other cucumbers. Just might be the only cucumber the home garden will ever need since it does dual purpose. Very disease resistant and will grow through anything and yield a huge crop over a long season. Resistant to the following: angular leaf spot, downy mildew, papaya ring spot, scab, watermelon mosaic virus, zucchini mosaic virus, anthracnose race 1 & 2, cucumber mosaic virus, and powdery mildew. That's a lot and is unique in that respect. Great dark green salad cucumber from small sizes on up, as well as a marvelous pickling cuke from about 1 1/2 inches up to 4 - 5 inches long. For best at slicer is 7 inches long. Strong vigorous plants set loads of uniform, firm, white-spined very dark green fruits. Monoecious variety requires no pollinator. Cucumbers contain about 90% water and are still nourishing.
