What are the pros? Under 60 days, TASTE!

What are the cons? UGLY!

Review:

This is my first year successfully growing cucumbers. I didn't purchase these particular seeds from Baker Creek, but have purchased all my other seeds since finding you guys. I had this old seed pack forever, and decided to give them a try. The cukes are UGLY, bearded (kind of) and just look plain alien! However, after not even tasting them and tossing many of them over the hill, my husband gave them taste. They are magnificent. We eat them fresh with hummus. The seeds are large, but don't let that fool you that they are woody, they are not. I had so many, I made relishes and bread and butter chunks with the extras. I did pick some whole, they were good, but a big squishy near the center.

What are the pros? Sweet flavor, no need to peel

What are the cons? High winds can topple vines

Review:

These are the only cucumber I have ever liked for fresh eating, with no need to peel. Since they are smaller than long cukes, I tend to eat them like an apple while working in the garden. Long vines produce well, so have a strong trellis or chain link fence ready, and make sure they are secured well since they can get very heavy. The tendrils sometimes don't hold as well as needed and strong winds can tear the vine off the trellis.

What are the pros? Very mild and not acidy.

What are the cons? none

Review:

This year was the first time that I planted them. They generate a lot of vine and a lot of cucumbers.I love the taste especially when they are picked when they are turning yellow with a slight gold tint. I peeled mine before eating but I read that you can rub off the little whiskers and eat it all. great in salads and with or without vinegar and just snacking

What are the cons? Seedy

Review:

Planted these in my first garden and the plants are producing very well, and only seem to be getting better with increasing size and flavor quality. They have a lot of seeds for their small size, but a fun, easy vegetable to grow and great conversation piece! Everyone is intrigued and loves the taste when they try.
