60 days. Here’s a gorgeous all-purpose slicing/pickling type. The plants are of bush habit, usually running no more than 18” or so, making them superior for small gardens, containers, or anywhere space is tight. Fruits hold well on the plants, so avoiding the need for constant picking. Plants are also tolerant to Downy Mildew, which is so often a problem in humid-summer climates. The bumpy, brightly striped exterior is particularly attractive as well. A superb new Polish variety!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, stunning fruit

What are the cons? Plant dying off, maybe too hot

Review:

I got a late start with my cucumbers this year and just threw a few seeds into a corner of a bed where I noticed some room. Well, I was in for a surprise! These little seeds burst to life within a day or two and the race was on. The plant was vivacious and exploded off the edge of the bed. I was out of the country for three weeks in August but I had the chance to eat one of the cukes before I left (which seemed far too soon to be getting cukes off a plant that got a late start...) and it was so mildly sweet and delicious. My husband said he couldn't keep up with eating all the cucumbers while I was gone and picked 5 the day before I came home. When I came home, I picked 3 more. We have been sharing them and eating salads every day. They're cute, short and kind of stubby, with a beautiful mottled skin. Today, I sliced one and put it in to pickle. This is definitely a great cucumber for any beginners or anyone who loves to have more cukes than you know what to do with! Will plant again.

What are the pros? Not one bitter cuke all summer

What are the cons? N/A

Review:

These cucumbers grew on sturdy vines which didn't take up much space in our small garden. Produced fruits regularly all season. Beautiful skins, crisp, sweet flesh, and we didn't get one bitter one in the bunch all summer long. We love them so much that we'll plant these every year from now on.

What are the pros? Taste, texture

What are the cons? A little slow to mature

Review:

I adore this cucumber. Just might be the sweetest, best tasting cuke I've ever had. The flesh is firm but tender, juicy without a trace of bitterness. Crisp. It is both a perfect slicer and pickler. I have these planted in hay bales with a six foot trellis. It's July 4 and the runners are 2/3 up the trellis. The runners will be well over 6 foot by the end of the summer, I'm sure. So, Dar is not a compact plant. But, that's a non-issue for me. The plants are loaded with tons of immature cukes so our harvest will be huge barring a catastrophe. So far, they are pest-free and disease-free. But, it's not quite time for the onslaught of mildews in our area. My only complaint is that these cucumbers mature a lot more slowly than the typical cucumber variety. Which some people may find this to be a desirable trait. Dar cucumber will always be in my garden. I am extremely satisfied with this cuke!

What are the pros? Nonstop supply of Cukes

What are the cons? I'm bad at canning :-/

Review:

I'd never really grown cucumbers before, and wow did I pick the right variety. Not only did these guys survive most of the summer here in zone 7a, I had more cucumbers than I knew what to do with. I had 20-25 plants growing on a vertical 10x10 frame, and I think I was picking around a half dozen 4 to 6 inch cukes per day, despite these being smaller, more compact plants. I was giving these out to friends and family every week, and I still had too many cucumbers. I canned improperly, but if I hadn't, I would still have pickles right now (it's early December here). Going to be growing them again next year for sure!!!

Review:

These were our favorite of the season! Crisp, no bitterness and produced like crazy! They have continued to produce while the other types have slowed down in the heat.
