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!

What are the pros? Prolific, grows fast

What are the cons? got mildew really bad

Review:

First off, I love this cuke. I have been growing it for 3 seasons now and have made lots of delicious pickles out of it. I plant 4 vines and let them all trellis together and then I get crazy amounts of cukes off them. I picked them small and some got quite large ( the large I made into relish) none of them were bitter, and they took the Florida heat very well. I will continue to grow them every year, I have tried others but none compare to the Straight 8!!!

Review:

This is the only cucumber my family will grow. Best pickling and slicing cucumber. Best at 8 inches. Watch out for hidden ones...they get HUGE. Not very good once they get that big.
