What are the pros? Prolific
What are the cons? Mildew, turned bitter
Near Cleveland, OH, 2 blocks from Lake Erie, using sfg. We grew these last year. *Very* prolific; I picked them very small and got at least 1 qt (packed!) of refrigerator pickles per plant, and that's not including all the raw ones we ate or the *many* cucumbers we shared with friends & family. Towards the end of the summer, I was harvesting twice a day to pick them when they were just 1" long because I was running out of room in my fridge! However, once the heat came, the cucumbers turned bitter. :-( My husband didn't really notice the bitter ones, but apparently I'm really sensitive to bitter cucumbers so I'll be looking for a different variety this year. Also, lots of powdery mildew.
