An old heirloom dating back to 1880. Vigorous vines give large yields of smooth green fruit. It is excellent for pickles; very crisp and good quality. A very popular variety at the turn of the 20th century.

What are the pros? Heavy yields, GREAT pickles

What are the cons? None

Review:

Planted four plants straight into the ground this year (early May) and grew vertically. This variety gives such heavy yields we had to harvest every two days, at the very least, once the started producing. We made pickles every weekend for for four or five weeks (approx. 40 quarts) until the cucumber beetle infestation hit later in the season. Everyone is raving about our dill pickles! This variety is deliciously crisp and mild when eaten fresh. Considering only planting two or three next year since they are so prolific. Will grow no other variety.

Review:

This little cucumber is amazing. The plants did very well in the Southern heat and drought. Quick to put out and a constant harvest for months. Superb for pickling. Not a very strong taste.

What are the pros? Easy to grow!

Review:

Basically planted the seed and gave it water every other day. That was all it needed!! I cannot believe how many cucumbers I have picked and its still blooming. I did feed it coffee grounds from time to timer which really made it take off.

What are the pros? Easy to start

What are the cons? Sensitive

Review:

I probably won't try these again. I am in SW MO - Zone 6A. The heat has been a little hotter than normal this summer but I haven't gotten one good cucumber. They've all turned yellow and gone bad before I've had a chance to pick. One day I had one too young to pick, looked outside the next morning and it was bright yellow. They just seem to be too sensitive for my zone. Will go back to my old variety next year - Straight Eight.
