A delicious, very sweet cucumber that is usually picked small and does not need peeling as the skin is very tender. This variety is very popular in the Mediterranean, having been developed in Israel at a kibbutz farm. Now becoming popular with Americans because of the fruits’ fine flavor and high yields. They are also burpless and have great shelf life.

Review:

These are growing really well in my garden. They are starting to produce now and I am soon going to have several a day to pick. They are thin skinned with small seeds and very crisp with a nice sweet flavor. I will grow these again.

Review:

This is my favorite table cucumber, sweet and crisp. I haven't yet had a bitter one. It is not always the most prolific, but that's okay for me. Remains sweet even when they get large - which some inevitably will.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, but...

What are the cons? Fruiting is heat sensitive

Review:

Las summer was quite hot in San Fernando valley, several weeks of around 100 degrees. I started the seeds in pit pods indors in early March and transplanted outside in mid-April. The plants were growing on a trellis very well until the first heat wave that happened when they just started blooming. Then, the growth slowed down a bit, but the worst was that most of blooms just fell of. Vegetatively, the plants grew about 10 feet tall over summer, but the yields were next to nothing, 1 or 2 cuces from each plant. Besides, the taste was mediocre.

What are the pros? edible skin, sweet, productive

What are the cons? don't keep well after picking

Review:

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!
