What are the pros? excellent flavor
What are the cons? none
Love this multi-purpose cucumber and it is now the only one I grow. I make naturally fermented pickles, as well as vinegar pickles and enjoy these cucumbers for fresh eating. They also have a nice aroma and are not adored by squash bugs. I don't like transplanting cucumbers, squash or melons so I start them outside early under a wine bottle closhe then with first true leaves I remove the bottle and start a second round, this year, I may even do a third round. This is not really for succession planting, but more as insurance against early season wind damage, critter/cat, cold snap etc. If they all make it, I can thin or dig up transplants for friends.

What are the pros? Grows well,good pickles
What are the cons? 0
These are good for pickling or skinning them and eating them off the vine, they mantain a well crunch after pickling.. if picked early around 6 inches long, they hardly have any seeds and are full of meat.

What are the pros? Great pickling cucumber
This has been a wonderful addition to the garden this year. I've not had great success with cucumbers, but this year has been great! Give them plenty of water and good, rich compost and they will grow. Trellising helps too. I use these for both fresh eating and picking and they are great both ways. Very mild in taste and juicy. I'll have them in my garden from now on.
What are the pros? Mild taste, heat hardy
After repeated failures with Straight 8 and Marketmore, I tried Muncher and Pickling in 2016. Both did good and Muncher is now my #1 favorite hot summer cucumber. The skin is edible, the flavor mild, and can be used in a smoothie. It is very prolific this summer so I can share some with my neighbor! Highly recommend, especially for hot areas.
