What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Mildew, turned bitter

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Size and taste

What are the cons? Spines

Review:

I tired these on a lark because I have never been able to grow a decent cucumber here (from Maine). These actually grew, produced well and tasted so good. They do need to be checked daily and they do need to be watered consistently. Mine were in raised beds. They lasted till the mildew got them. I'm growing again this year.

What are the pros? heavy yield

What are the cons? slow starter

Review:

If you love those tiny sour gherkin pickles, then these are the cucumbers you want to grow. These are not great for fresh eating, but perfect for pickling! I planted several just for that purpose, and the vines were so prolific my trellises simply weren't tall enough. At least a 6 foot trellis is needed, and space them well or the cucumbers are hard to spot and will grow too large. The vines were slow to start but summer heat made them take off. These are not for the casual gardener, I had to harvest every evening (in the mornings the blossoms were covered in bees, best to wait) the ones that were the perfect size, about 1.5-2 inches long, medium green, then wash off all the prickers and salt them before pickling them. Cornichons are pickled in pure white vinegar so it's easy to just add to the jars every day til full. I just took the vines down since I canned as much as I wanted but they were still producing. Beware of whitefly though, my vines got it bad near the end.

What are the pros? Healthy, good producers

What are the cons? no dislikes

Review:

I love these little "cornichons". They are the kind I have been used to in Europe, and I am very happy with them. They have a fruit almost with every leaf they put out. They are hardy, didn't have any disease issue, and I have plenty of assassin bugs and preying mantises to keep pests away. They are great pickled and delicious in salads - with my salad varieties not producing any fruit, I've been using these for both pickling AND salads. I will keep planting these.

Too Fast Growing

What are the pros? Produced well

What are the cons? Hard to harvest fast enough

Review:

I grew 3 types of cucumbers this year. I was very frustrated with these. From the time the tiny pickle appeared from the blossom, it seemed like there was 1 day window of opportunity before they got too large and yellowed. They produced very well, but plan to check your plants daily, perhaps twice daily so they don't get past the size you want. Flavor was bitter when raw, but that is to be expected in this cucumber.
