What are the pros? Not much to like here
What are the cons? Poor producer; not for pickles
Planted these along my favorites Boston and National. Germination and growth were excellent. Plants were healthy but lacked vigor. Lots of flowers, visited daily by many bee species but did not produce well. Fruit non-uniform with a very thin skin which did not stand up to rigors of the pickling crock. Thought I would try pickling them by directly canning them as cold-pack marinated pickles but had to abandon the idea since they did not produce nearly enough. Will have to look for a suitable specimen for my cuke crop rotation elsewhere.
