What are the pros? Flavor, hardiness
What are the cons? Nothing.
Oh man, what a great cuke. This is the first year I have attempted these guys and am super thrilled. The plants are hardy and vigorous with an apparent resistance to powdery mildew. This has been an ongoing issue in my garden for years and although an adjacent melon and different variety of cucumber are being actively treated for the problem, there is no evidence that the Aonagas has even a whiff of mildew. The fruits are incredibly fun to watch day by day as they start as skinny, spiky snakes no thicker than a pencil, and only after achieving a certain length do they plump up into gorgeous sizable cucumbers. The flavor is the best I've tasted as well. There is more flesh than seeds, no bitterness, and sweet as a cucumber could be. They make a fantastic munching cuke or make for an awesome salad when you pair these sweet buggers with an acidic vinaigrette. I couldn't be more pleased and will grow these again in the future.
