What are the pros? great flavor and appearance

What are the cons? not a super heavy producer

Review:

Best looking cukes I've ever produced. They're beautiful to look at. Taste is on par with overall appearance aw well. Almost act like a determinate or semi determinate plant so I have found it best to compost the plants down in June and reseed for fall/summer garden. If space is limited then a heavier producing variety might better suite the grower. however, if you have room for more than one variety of cukes, then don't pass these up! THEY ARE AWESOME!

What are the pros? Grew well

What are the cons? Bitter, misshapen, too large

Review:

Every year I try another pickling variety instead of Boston Pickling, and every year I wish I had just grown the Bostons again. These started out promising, grew well and the first few cukes came off the perfect size for pickling whole, but after a few weeks the vines weren't producing that many and the ones that did grow were horribly misshapen. Four out of five were either pinched in the middle with an hourglass shape or grew round like an plum so they were useless for pickling. If I left them on the plant a few days longer hoping they would fill out in the middle, then they grew too big and were useless. Most of them were simply too big or oddly shaped to even fit in a quart jar. Overall too bitter for fresh eating so it seemed like a lot of these were wasted. Sadly I have a lot of the seeds left since they were 2 for 1 when I bought them at the Petaluma store.

What are the pros? crunchy and delicious

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have some straight eights in my garden that crowded this plant out. I didn't get many cukes from it but the ones I did get were the most delicious cucumber I've ever had raw. The skin is thin and the rest is so crisp and crunchy. It's got a nice cucumber flavor and they are not very bitter. I'm growing all delikatesse next year.

Review:

I'm a beginner and these cucumbers are making me look like an expert, they are so vigorous and beautiful. I just picked my first cucumbers ~ they were about 6"~ and made a tzaziki that tasted amazing. I do have a question about the hairy spikes. Do they lose those as they get bigger or is that just one of their features? And can you eat the peel?

Review:

I had so many cucumber, I didn't know what to do with all of them. Okay, well, I did pickle them, but it was worth all the work. I probably got nearly 75-100 cucumbers from only a handful of plants. We had a drought this year and I still can't believe how wonderfully they grew. Not one of them tasted bitter!
