What are the pros? Tender Skin, Great Flavor
What are the cons? Bacterial Wilt
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).
