What are the pros? Tender Skin, Great Flavor

What are the cons? Bacterial Wilt

Review:

I will always grow these. They are the only cuke I like for fresh eating; you can eat them just like an apple, and their skin is tender and thin. What a treat! For a cucumber, they're relatively drought tolerant, too. I am growing these up trellises this year in the hope of slowing down the spread of bacterial wilt that always hits them in my garden. They were certainly more quickly struck down by it than were the "Straight Eights" I grew alongside them last year (though both kinds eventually succumbed).

What are the pros? Super Crunchy, No Indigestion

What are the cons? Late Summer Harvest

Review:

Once you try these cucumbers you will not bother growing any other variety. These are best eaten before they turn completely yellow. I harvest them while they are still green, with only the shoulders beginning to turn yellow. I make them into the best canned Bread and Butter Pickles ever! Folks fight over them, drinking the leftover juices straight from the jar (I add organic yellow onions with organic sweet and sour). So crunchy and flavorful! They are wonderful raw, too. Just be sure to rub their surface with a dry kitchen towel to remove the bristles. No need to peel them. You can also successfully harvest their seeds for the following year.

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
