What are the pros? Great pickling cucumber

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is my second attempt at growing this cucumber. Finally, success! I planted these directly in the garden and trellised them. I believe the key to my success this year was putting them on a fertilizer schedule every three weeks and making sure they got lots of water. It's been a very wet season this year and that has helped tremendously. I've pickled several jars of cucumbers already, and the vines are still growing and full of new fruit. Great little cucumber!

What are the pros? So unbelievably prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

Amazing producer! Eight plants produced close to 7 gallons of pickles. I planted the cukes next to an 8 ft, lattice garden fence (late- a few weeks after the frost date), and the vines went over the top of the fence and in some cases 2 feet down the other side. I made salads, picked spears & Hbg. dills, & even pickled some with hot peppers & garlic. Produced so much that I can skip planting cukes this year. The cucumbers do hide behind the big leaves, so you must move leaves to find them all. Toward the end of the season, it looked like There was some powdery mildew on the leaves, but this did not hurt the yield or the flavor.

What are the pros? Perfectly sized for canning

What are the cons? Not disease resistant

Review:

Great-tasting cuke, crunchiest of any I have grown. Plants were manageable size. They held out a few weeks longer than my Lemon Cucumber plants (always first to get disease), but attracted lots of cucumber beetles and succumbed to powdery mildew. Not a keeper for my humid region.

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.
