What are the pros? Nice BIG Cuc, Not Bitter
What are the cons? Took a while to get growing
Grown in So Cal in zone 9b: While all my other cucumbers have long since died due to powdery mildew, these cucs are growing strong. Just had our first cucumber and we harvested about the size of the largest cucumber in the photo of the boy holding the cucumbers. The skin was thin and had very few spikes. I just brushed off the spikes with a paper towel after rinsing, it was no big deal. I was fearful that it would be tough, have lots of seeds and the skin might be bitter due to the size, however I was wrong on all counts. The skin was thin, there were very little seeds and it tasted great...it wasn't bitter at all. I was very surprised on all counts. We have had unusual weather for us here, lots of rain an a marine layer that has come in almost daily and then we will have days of blistering heat. I'm thrilled to have any cucumbers at all, and these I will be planting again, year after year!! Highly recommend.
