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.

What are the pros? Pretty, tasty cukes

What are the cons? Quite picky

Review:

Okay, I left a review last year that this cucumber was just meh, and that was true last year. This year I moved the cukes to the front garden. Much, much better soil out there. I fertilized and kept everything watered last year, but they just never produced anything very good. This year, on the other hand...I planted about 55 days ago, and I've brought in a dozen beautiful straight green cucumbers, not very seedy, nice smooth skins and very tasty. It's been quite hot here of late and dry for the last two weeks, so not really an ideal climate year. These cucumbers apparently just aren't suited to mediocre, sandy soil. If you have good deep soil with a lot of compost, though, this cucumber is a winner.

What are the pros? Great yield, crisp, good flavo

What are the cons? None

Review:

Loved these cucumbers. We harvested many pounds of cucumbers from our 18 or so vines. They were prolific and so tasty. I love the flavor, the texture, and the peelings aren't thick. I recommend harvesting before they get large so the seeds are small and the peel tender. We are planting again this year and like last year, we keep the vines off the ground by tying them to up with twine - they climb the fence that surrounds our garden.

What are the pros? easy to grow, great fruits

What are the cons? sprawling plants, needs room

Review:

I grew this cucumber last year to great success. We had a cold, wet summer. Plant was located in a sunny location. Loves to climb. I started the plants early and transplanted in newspaper cups. Pickled the fruits as well and they turned out very crisp and delicious. Highly recommended. Plant may climb if provided with a stand to climb on.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? not for cold summers

Review:

I try these last Summer, they grew just fine, they flowered set one fruit and stopped there. I had 4 plants that gave me 2 mini cucumbers, taste was ok , they were not sick, no bugs, I guess they just had not been ok with either soil or the weather because we had colder nights troughout Summer. I am in zone 5b in Canada.
