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? Great taste bountiful

What are the cons? Last to put on fruit

Review:

Loved the pickel. I put up a lot of pickels a family favorite give them for gifts at holidays. Started in my greenhouse. Transplanted easlily. They on fruit a little later than the other two varieties planted but produced longer. Plants must be checked daily or you will have huge yellow cukes. I do not trellis but leave plenty of room in between they do run. If you do not trellis be judicious with the water unless very dry. Best to water in the morning so the water will evaporate off the leaves during the day. Prolonged wet leaves, I have found,will produce white mildew. Once that sets in the plant will not survive and there is nothing you can really do to reverse it.

What are the pros? very prolific

What are the cons? they like to hide

Review:

Been growing this cucumber on a trellis for several years and it never disappoints. They produce really well and should be picked every day or two or will get large quickly. No problem though because they are still mild and sweet. They do hide well among the leaves so look carefully! These make the best refrigerator pickles when picked a little bigger than your thumb but are good sliced into spears if they get a little larger. Good sliced fresh too.

What are the pros? great pickler; crispy

What are the cons? none

Review:

I live in probably the hottest part of the nation....zone 11. It can be a challenge growing stuff here in the desert but these pickles did outstanding. With plenty of water, I had a huge crop and canned over 100 jars of pickles. Numerous compliments from friends on the flavor of the pickles. They are also excellent for eating. Thin skinned and crispy; tastes fantastic in a salad. I'm ordering more for this year!

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.
