Small 3” oval fruit are a bright, creamy white, about the size of a small apple; sweet, mild and very tender. This variety has become almost extinct in America after being introduced here from Australia around the year 1930 from Arthur Yates and Co. But this type of cucumber is likely to have originated in China. The small fruit are so tender you can eat them skin and all.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, Prolific

What are the cons? Mildew

Review:

Love this cucumber. Was easy to grow for a first time gardener. It was very prolific, as long as you pick it they seem to keep coming. The family loved it. The kids next door loved it. What more can you ask for? Like most cucumbers though, it did eventually succumb to powdery mildew.

What are the pros? Heavy producer

What are the cons? Skin gets very tough w/size

Review:

Very fun cucumber to grow. Children would love it. Produces very well if picked regularly. We have harvested well over 50 from just a few plants. Easy to start, lasts well into Autumn's cool temperatures. Must be picked early. Fruit larger than 3" develop thick skins that are terribly difficult to chew and they also have many many seeds. A plus with the seeds is that you can save them for the following year.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, delicous

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew three types of cucs from seed this year. The other two barely produced but these did great. I have gotten hundreds of cucs from 3-4 plants. They are great fresh and we recently made pickles from them. Fermented them whole in our crock. They made the best pickles I've ever eaten. These may be the only cucs I grow from now on.

What are the pros? very heavy producer

What are the cons? bitter. takes awhile produce

Review:

It may take a couple more weeks for these guys to start producing, but once they get going, they cannot be picked fast enough! Off of 2 plants, we got dozens and dozens of cukes! Only downside is they can be pretty bitter. But I have heard there are ways to remedy this. I say give 'em a shot!

Pretty yummy

What are the pros? Very yummy flavor

What are the cons? Low producer

Review:

Yummy. Mild flavor with slightly citrus taste. Took a while to germinate, and didn't produce much, but withstood the harsh unpredictable Houston, TX weather. Ants and a few pests seemed to be attracted to it, but didn't destroy it.
