60 days. Very tender, dual-purpose variety makes great pickles and is excellent for fresh eating right out of the garden! Nearly spineless fruits are 6 to 8 inches long, reaching a plump 3 inches wide. Produces abundantly on strong vigorous vines. Non-bitter, burpless variety, can be eaten at any stage of growth. For pickling, harvest the fruits at 4 to 6 inches long.

The best tasting cucumber ever

What are the pros? taste, heat tolerance

What are the cons? Aphids loved it

Review:

Best darn tasting cucumber I have ever had. I was nervous they would get bitter in the Phoenix heat, but nope, Even the ones I missed that got overgrown tasted fantastic. The taste was so amazing I love them so much. I am going to try to grow them year round here. The only downside - the aphids absolutely LOVED them, too. I had to rigorously spray Neem oil for several weeks and the plants aren't recovering that well. They've only stopped flowering when the temperatures got above 110 degrees. I'll surely grow these every year for the rest of my life. I did not try picking them, just ate fresh.

What are the pros? Prolific, delicious

What are the cons? Powdery mildew

Review:

I’ve grown a lot of different cucumbers over the years and these are definitely my favorite. They really are great to snack on right out of the garden. I wanted to pickle some but never managed to make it that far. I will definitely grow these again. This was a funny summer that started very cold and damp (we’re by the coast) and ended up with tripple digits in early July and then a cooler overcast period. The cucumber made it through. It did get powdery mildew late in July and slow down production significantly. I only pulled a couple small. cucumbers in a two week period. There are more flowers so I’m hoping the plant gets a second wind.

What are the pros? Taste & disease resistance

Review:

Sumter is the best tasting cucumber I've ever eaten. Strong cucumber flavor, never bitter. I grew 6 varieties of cucumbers this year and as of mid July, 3 developed powdery mildew but the sumters remain fungus free without treatment. This variety is good for pickling or slicing.

Review:

Planted these in April of this year. Growing in zone 7b. They're growing great. I've harvested three times this week off of one packet of these seeds using only organic fish emulsion and a deep mulch bed.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, flavor, size

What are the cons? Storage, slicing

Review:

The dislikes are hardly an issue. This cucumber survived drought really well. I was late planting along with Early Fortune and only 1 Early Fortune survived (and is still a dwarf) while all 4 Muncher survived and I've harvested a cucumber per plant. We did quick pickles with them and they retained a really good crunch and pickle texture. They taste okay for slicing but they don't get as big to make decent slices, but would do fine chopped in something like tzatziki. I stored them in the refrigerator for a day and they seemed to go limp pretty quickly, so they might not store as long. I love this variety and it fares very well and is producing like crazy, not sure I will be able to keep up harvesting.
