Great cucumber
Reviewed By: hsmith (Northern Cambria, PA)
I plant these every other years to make pickle chips and for fresh eating. They grow amazingly well and actually spanned the top of the trellis to a nearby crab apple tree. Made for creative picking that year. Great tasting and reliable producer.

Way too bitter
Reviewed By: Steven (Andrews, Texas)
I have grown beautiful cukes using these seeds for three seasons and every one of them has been too bitter to take a second bite. Three seasons! Not one edible cuke! Different pack of seeds each time. They look amazing and taste equally awful.

VERY good
Reviewed By: Sheila (White Lake, MI)
Used these to make pickles and Sweet relish - VERY satisified with the results - especially the relish. Easy to process with a slicer, canned product kept very well 3 years later. (Why did they wait so long to use it ???!!??)

Order it again and again
Reviewed By: Emma (Summerville, SC)
We get this cucumber every single year and it never fails us. We get bushels and bushels of large (look like store-bought) perfect cucumbers off of each plant. We used to live up north, but since we've moved to the south, we've discovered that our plants are giving us cucumbers well into January(despite some frosts). They take only a few days to start from seed. Love em love em LOVE EM!!!
