What are the pros? kid favorite

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

We as a family love these! I have to keep my kids out of the patch to keep them from eating the tiny ones. These do amazingly well in our 7a heat and sun. Out climate makes standard cucs bitter really fast these Armenian cucumbers are never better in my experience. I pulled one once that was as long as my own arm. the juices inside were slightly sour. The flavor is best at 12 - 15 inches however the amazing vines they will hide and you will find some clubs hidden in the leaves. I cannot recommend these cucumbers enough they are my favorite. I buy them for all of my friends who are first time gardener, I flog these things around town and every one is so happy to take them off my hands.

What are the pros? Bestseller at market

What are the cons? late season mildew

Review:

After many years of selling at market, we now only grow Armenian cukes. They are the most consistent in flavor and they really love our hot dry climate. It does take a bit of TLC to get them sprouted and growing, but they produce well. Our favorite thing about them is that they don't get bitter, even when they are quite large.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Did not develop any Cucumbers

Review:

Planted these next to Telegraph Improved Cucumbers in late April/early May. The Telegraph were prolific. I got some male buds on the Armenian, however, the plants never seemed to develop. They wilted and died approximately two months after I planted them in the garden from the seed start trays. The telegraph were going strong. I don't know if this was an outlier or if the vine borers found these more attractive than the Telegraphs, but I planted approx. 6 armenian cucs and 6 telegraphs. The vine borers eventually got to all my cucs by the end of the summer. Most likely will try the Armenians one more eeason. If I get the same result, I'll be done with them for good in my area.

What are the pros? We love it cooked

What are the cons? Not as crispy as usual cukes

Review:

Lordy! When these started producing, it was overwhelming. We discovered that we don't like these as much as conventional cukes in salads. They are VERY solid and meaty. So I looked up cooking cukes on a whim. Delightful! We saute these in a mix of avocado oil and butter, add a bit of garlic and/or tarragon or basil and happily eat the results. Special note: my husband is allergic to regular cucumbers, which is why I tried these since they're in the melon family. He can eat them just fine!

What are the pros? Flavor, texture, production

What are the cons? slow until fast

Review:

If picked at the correct size, these will beat out darn near any other cucumber. I'm also growing an excellent burpless variety of traditional cucumber that is a VERY good cucumber, but these just win. The flesh to seed ratio is excellent- they are thick fleshed with tiny seeds. There is no perceptible skin, unlike even the best burpless cucumber. True cucumber taste with absolutely no bitterness or numbness (not sure if anyone else gets that from the cucumber skin, but it can be a bit distracting for me). Clip, chill, slice and serve with a little salt and pepper for a truly refreshing snack. Or add to a pitcher of water, also so refreshing. The con- the male flowers arrive first on this plant and get you all excited for fruits. There obviously wont be any until the female flowers open, pollinate and turn into fruits. My zucchini and true cuke produced fruit a couple weeks before this guy. But now that he's taken off, it's a very prolific plant.
