60 days. Very tender, dual-purpose variety makes great pickles and is excellent for fresh eating right out of the garden! Nearly spineless fruits are 6 to 8 inches long, reaching a plump 3 inches wide. Produces abundantly on strong vigorous vines. Non-bitter, burpless variety, can be eaten at any stage of growth. For pickling, harvest the fruits at 4 to 6 inches long.

Review:

This is the second year that I planted these. I planted 5 vines on a trellis and am getting enough cucumbers to feed several families! I have picked around 80 cucumbers off my vines to date with no slow down in sight. The taste is mild without any bitterness. I plan to continue to plant this variety.

Fantastic versatile cucumber

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Vigorous plants, bug resistant

What are the cons? Slow, a bit too mild

Review:

I only planted two of these since it's my first year growing them, and I didn't want to devote a bunch of space to something I didn't end up liking. I will definitely be planting MANY more next year so that I can make dill pickles. It's incredibly mild and the flesh very crisp; personally I like a little more flavor in an eating cuke but this is still very good. I would recommend against it for recipes that require removing seeds, as the seed core is HUGE. I started the plants indoors and once they were outside they absolutely took off. So far they have proved very resistant to disease, insects, etc. However, they have been quite a bit behind my mother's Marketmore 76 plants, both in terms of overall size and production. A thin-skinned and non-bitter result totally makes up for it, though, especially given how robust the plants have been. Even the cucumber beetles have stayed away.

Review:

We planted these last fall in our garden...we picked approximately 200 lbs. of cucumbers. I did trellis with t-posts and garden twine. We also had a great season of rain. We planted them again this year and they have performed well yet again. While we depended on rain last fall, this fall I have a drip line. I tried trellising them again, the plants were so heavy, my twine broke, but it didn't affect the production. However, rain is ALWAYS better than city water. :) The heat is extreme and the leaves don't look as green and beautiful, but there are flowers covering the vines. Due to the extreme heat, we have picked approximately 96lbs so far....this has been over course of 3 months. I believe the heat and lack of rain has influenced production in comparison to last year. They make great slicing and pickling cucumbers. We will continue to use these. Good luck!!!

Our favorite cukes
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow and very prolific

What are the cons? Get soft quickly

Review:

These are the best cukes for fresh eating we have tried. I love that they are spineless so even my 3 year old can help pick them! They make great pickles too, but our favorite way to eat them is fresh with a little homemade ranch dressing or on a salad!

Review:

Of the three cucumber varieties I grew this year (Muncher, Lemon, and Armenian), this one outperformed by far. I trellised them up a tomato cage and they just kept producing and producing. My garden was flooded and they continued to produce. I left them to fend for themselves when morning sickness took over my life and they still produced. My neighbors' cucumbers had succumbed to the strange weather and mine were still going strong! The other two varieties barely survived our unusually wet Southeast Ohio summer this year. Definitely planting this again!
