What are the pros? Ease of growth. Edibility.
What are the cons? None
Planted 4 seeds in the ground, hoping for 2 plants. I had 100% germination rate and had to pick the two healthiest looking plants. I let them grow up a trellis and do their thing. I harvested the younger cucumbers while still green. In my opinion, the were crisper and had a better flavor than any other cucumber that I've ever grown. It didn't take long for them to grow. One of the easiest things I've ever grown with an enormous return on your seed investment.

What are the pros? Fantastic cucumber "quality"
What are the cons? Low fruit production
Even at it's largest size (easily several pounds) the flesh is crisp. Make a great salad, not at all soggy. Keep very well in the fridge so one fruit can provide a good week of eating. They are even tastier at smaller sizes. Drawbacks for me were very low germination (2 out of 10) and apparently most blossoms are male, hence a very low fruit set in relation to the number of blooms. I didn't realize that the seeds could be planted into cool soil, and will also start a couple in peat pots for earlier production.
What are the pros? Big, Beautiful and Long-Keeper
What are the cons? Marginal Production.
This cucumber is big and beautiful with outstanding flavor! It also has a shelf life significantly higher than other cucumbers I've tried. Will grow again next year...and have saved seeds to share the experience with other gardeners!

What are the pros? The size of the fruit
What are the cons? Number of fruit
Probably sacrifice quantity for quality. Also number of fruit may have been adversely affected by it being my first year in the garden.
