What are the pros? VERY prolific!

What are the cons? Can be seedy.

Review:

I just picked 16 cucumbers off of this plant this morning. Kind of a late producer, but just be patient. I have picked at least one cucumber a day off of this plant for the past two weeks. There are still a dozen or so that are still growing on the plant and it is still flowering. The most prolific cucumber I have ever grown. Pick them while on the smaller side when they just start to turn light yellow. If they get too big, they are rather seedy with more gel than meat. About the size of a racquet ball is perfect! Perfect snack cucumber.

Great tasting cucumbers

What are the pros? Great taste. Pretty vegetable.

What are the cons? Slow to start producing

Review:

I grow these on a little fence I have around my garden. Sow them in late April / early May. Vigorous growers (one of the vines is now climbing a nearby tree branch). They make lots of flowers but really start producing heavily in mid July. Hold up well in the heat but need regular watering. Excellent taste, great to eat raw, no bitter skin.

Best for Fresh Eating

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).

Best Cucumber You Can Grow

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.
