This is a large yellow cucumber that was popular in Holland for making yellow, sliced pickles. The Dutch call this cucumber the “ancient race”. The ripe fruit is quite colorful in its sunny yellow color. A fine old strain that is very rare now even in Europe.

What are the pros? Large plant, prolific, tasty

What are the cons? Takes an eye/feel for ripeness

Review:

I got these this year just as a fun addition to my garden and it is easily the most productive out of all of the varieties of cucumbers I have growing. They are quiet large (about a foot for me but you may get larger ones!), and the cucumber vine it’s self gets huge. As the previous review states make sure to not pick to early for the sake of bitterness, and it took a bit of time compared to my smaller pickling cucumbers but it was so worth it!! This is easily a favorite, it’s a beautiful cucumber, it tastes great, I like to slice it and it makes some big pickle slices if you do want to pickle them ! I would grow them again and recommend 100%

Review:

Most people who have reviewed these cukes seem to like them, but a few people commented that they were hard or bitter. When I took my first bite out of one, I wondered what these folks were talking about. But then I picked one too early and found out. One must have a good eye for being able to tell when these cukes are absolutely and completely ripe. If they are picked a little too early, they may be hard and a bit bitter. But when picked ripe, they are absolutely delicious and rival common supermarket cukes. They grow fast and vigorously. Don't be surprised if you turn up with 2-foot cukes. I highly recommend them.

What are the pros? Pretty color

What are the cons? Bitter and very tough skin

Review:

These sprouted and grew very well. I was excited to try one and picked it too early - hard, bitter, very tough skin, and wasn't colorful at the time. Decided the problem was I hadn't waited long enough, so let the next group get very yellow. Got excited to try them again and sliced them up to have with a dip. No longer hard internally, still quite bitter, but the very tough skin was a big disappointment. It's not enjoyable to eat with it on. These didn't get any color until they were quite large, so I don't know how to avoid the too-large-cuc-bitterness and still have the skin turn color.

What are the pros? Impressive size and color

What are the cons? A few have bitter skin

Review:

I am growing these cucumbers vertically in a hoop house, trained up strings. These cukes fruit mostly on the side shoots, though I have found a few fruit on the main stem. These plants produce side shoots quite prolifically, so It shouldn't take many plants to cover a trellis. The plants coped well with my stingy watering regime, though 10-20% of my cukes had some bitterness in the skin, and this may have been due to water/heat stress. If in doubt, water heavily. Bitterness aside, these cukes are impressive specimens, with their golden skin and average weight of 600g.

What are the pros? Vigorous

What are the cons? Prickles

Review:

These are the first cucumbers I have tried to grow. They were easy to germinate and I planted out 2 in the garden. They managed to survive some blisteringly hot and dry weather with no ill effects. Once the hot, wet and humid weather arrived they took off. The trellis I put them on is woefully insufficient for their vigour and they are now spreading into other beds. They appear to be disease and pest free. The vines are covered in hundreds of flowers. The cucumbers themselves are very large and sturdy. And turn a lovely gold when ripe. However they are covered in fine black prickles which can make picking them a little awkward. I have learnt thought that These prickles are easily dealt with by rubbing them off with a cloth. The flavour is good and even the skin is not bitter, however it is slightly tough on the mature fruit so I tend to peel them for fresh use. This is not necessary if you are pickling them.
