What are the pros? Extremely heat tolerant, fast

What are the cons? Fruit can become too large

Review:

Introduced to these 10 years ago when I started growing in Phoenix. Was told "they are a must for summer here." My mentor was not wrong. Faithfully plant them every year and they will always be part of my garden here. These babies take the hottest, dryest days of Phoenix heat (110-120F in summer) and grow harder. They produce throughout the summer and just a couple plants is more than enough for me and the neighbors. Germination is always amazing and they will sprawl up and over just about anything; beware when planting near other plants. My 3 plants take up about 9 square feet on the ground and also climbed up and over 2 separate pallets I set upright as trellises. Keep in mind these are botanically a Musk melon so they will cross with your cantaloupes (dang things ruined some of my charentais seeds a couple years back).

What are the pros? Easy to grow, heat reaistant

What are the cons? Spread out too much, need prun

Review:

Makes the best old fashioned garlic, dill pickles I ever ate, always crisp and snappy. And I have been making dill plckles for over 30 years. Slice 1/4:inch rounds, add garlic, dill weed, a touch of alum or grape leaves. mayde a jalipeno if u like. Make a brine of 1 cup salt one quart apple vinigar in gallon jar. Fill up rest with water. Bring brine to rolling , repeat rolling boil, pour over to 1/2 inch and seal.

Review:

Tired this in 2017 and really like it. Raw slices seem mild and crisp to me. Lots of usuable flesh and not seedy. I substituted these for more traditional U.S. cucumbers in batches of relish to can. Seems to have worked well.

What are the pros? Taste, bountiful harvest

What are the cons? grow huge in a few days

Review:

I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to grow this very tasty cucumber in my community garden this summer. We provided a trellis to keep the vines off the ground. It worked but there were so many vines that some crawled on the ground. It's definitely better for the cucumber to grow straight on the trellis. The cucumbers survived our hot summer of 110-120 degrees in June and grew with even more vigor. We had so many cucumbers from 3 plants that we shared with our gardening friends and neighbors.

Review:

Well these are awesome, hardy plants that are putting on like crazy here in north central missouri. Produced harvestable-sized fruits only a week after my pickling cukes, which was a big surprise to me! They grow as fast as any summer squash. I have been looking forward to trying these because they are all the buzz on the internet, but am sad to report they're not for me. They don't have the sweetness of a melon, nor the coolness of a cucumber, which was what I was expecting since everyone says just that. They remind me more of a zucchini, with no flavor at all really, and I have picked several sizes--up to 18" trying to find the right flavor. They are really thick and meaty and great products, they're just not for me. But thanks for the opportunity, baker creek!
