52 days. All-America winner for 1935! Smooth, straight, deep green 8-inch fruits with rounded blunt ends. Early, vigorous and prolific; tolerates mosaic virus. A superb variety that has stood the test of time.

What are the pros? Easy to trellis

What are the cons? BITTER, poor wilt resistance

Review:

I would not recommend these for anyone in a hot climate. Whenever the heat cranked up here, the cukes turned very bitter. Production was fairly good, though it came in "waves"; had a few long spells of no cukes. Poorly set/ deformed fruits despite abundant pollinators and watering. Appreciated some shade whenever the sun became brutal in mid-summer

What are the pros? flavor, size

What are the cons? wildlife enjoys flavor too

Review:

This is an AWESOME Cucumber for Florida! Withstands the heat, rain and more heat. HUGE, wonderful flavor - Never Bitter - soil out West must be totally different. I am amazed at how fast they grow and how large these cucumbers really are. Next year the raccoons and squirrels won't be able to get to all the cucumbers I plant!

What are the pros? Quite prolific

What are the cons? Most were bitter

Review:

Lots of cucumbers but had to pick when they were small. If I waited until they got to be 7-8 inches long they were bitter. Maybe just not the right cucumber for my soil or area. Will try some different ones next year.

What are the pros? Heavy producer, Early Producer

What are the cons? Doesn't like real hot temps

Review:

I grow this variety every year and I am not disappointed. I think it tastes wonderful and don't ever seem to have the issue with it being bitter. I can't get customers to understand this variety is typically 8 inches. Seems like people assume that all cucumbers should be small or uniform like in the grocery store. Heirlooms aren't meant to look perfect all the time. You just can't beat their taste!
