What are the pros? edible skin, sweet, productive
What are the cons? don't keep well after picking
These are great for a fall planting in Arizona. I tried growing them in the spring, but it quickly became too hot for my plants. Though they survived and did produce some cucumbers, the fruits had tough skins with the majority of the flesh being bitter. However, I planted this variety again in late September, and have since been rewarded with delicious, sweet fruit with a thin edible skin. I pick them when they're only 6" or 7" long, so that I can eat them fresh in salad every day, or pickle them. They do not keep well on the counter or in the fridge, so make sure you have a plan for them before you pick! These cucumbers are the stars of my garden right now (it's currently early December), and it looks like as long as I keep them protected from the occasional frost they will keep producing like mad. I really couldn't be happier with them!
