An old heirloom dating back to 1880. Vigorous vines give large yields of smooth green fruit. It is excellent for pickles; very crisp and good quality. A very popular variety at the turn of the 20th century.

What are the pros? Fast growing, great producer

What are the cons? None thus far

Review:

Planted 10 of these seeds in my zone 5B garden and they are growing like crazy. Getting at least 6-10 per day right now in the first part of August. Have already made 6 quarts of pickles and have enjoyed them in some salads as well. I have them on a 6 x 15 foot trellis and they have covered that and are spreading onto the ground. I’ve had to give several of them away because they just produce so well. What I can’t use or get rid of, the chickens get so they’ve had plenty as well. I couldn’t be happier. It seems like once you start picking them, they produce even more. Can’t go wrong with these, give em’ a try!!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, lots of fruit

What are the cons? None!

Review:

Our first year growing anything in an actual garden, and these did not disappoint! We planted 4 vines on an A-trellis (early June), and while they seemed slow at first as soon as they grabbed onto the trellis they really took off! Normally pick maybe a dozen or more per week since they started fruiting. We’ve used them for slicing as kiddo loves snack time in the garden, making cucumber water, And we’ve already canned a dozen quarts of pickles with lots more growing! Don’t even think about it...get these seeds...you will NOT be disappointed!

Review:

This cucumber plant grew wonderfully in my 5a zone! I started it from seed in the ground the 26th of May and began harvesting the 8th of July. The plant grew beautifully, vining up my arching trellis which makes them very easy to get to. It has only been a week since I started harvesting and already have harvested 6 cucumbers off of one vine. The other 2 plants that I planted a week later have tiny cucumbers already. All three plants have TONS of blossoms as well so I’m hopeful that I will have a great harvest. They have a very crisp cucumber taste and even the one that I let grow fairly large didn’t get too bitter as pickling cucumbers can tend to do. So far I have put them up as refrigerator pickles and they stay crisp, not getting flabby like common market cucumbers will get after a few days. I’m very looking forward to canning a few quarts as well.

Review:

These guys popped up super fast for me, and I consider myself to have a brown thumb. I made easily a dozen quarts of crispy fridge pickles (cracked open the last one 6 mo later) from just 4 plants. When the leaf issue (mildew? rot?) set in they had already produced plenty and even persevered past it albeit at a much slower rate. My favorite plant to grow so far and Ive tried growing lots of different things.
