EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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.

Great in the Southeast
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Never bitter

What are the cons? Easy to miss when picking

Review:

This variety grew well for me in the hot, humid Southeast and did well despite borer grubs, stink bugs, Mexican bean beetles and powdery mildew. I planted them along a chain link fence and kept them off the ground as much as possible. The cucumbers tasted great and were never bitter but were not always easy to find before they got big enough that they would get big seeds. If the fruits had some yellow or white on their skin to make finding them easier they would be perfect. I think that drastic fluctuations in watering probably led to some of the misshapen fruits that other reviewers mentioned because when we got lots of rain after a dry spell a few of the fruits would get bigger at the end. I also got the occasional skin scarring other reviewers mentioned but it was from bug damage and nothing that wouldn't have occurred with any other variety of cucumber and I just used those myself, peeling where necessary. All in all, I like this variety and will plant again
