What are the pros? Easy to grow, productive
What are the cons? attracts squash beetles
In the past several years, I have not had success with cucumbers. This variety is a pleasant change. I have a square foot raised garden, and planted 3 plants each in 2 square feet. The plants trellis wonderfully, and I've already harvested about a dozen 12-18" cukes. The flavor is mild and perfect for snacking, with thin skins and a small amount of seeds. Even now, there are lots of baby cukes in the making, at the end of July. I have noticed several squash beetles and larvae on the leaves, but just destroy them upon discovery. Will be planting this variety again next year.
