Muncher Cucumber

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.

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.

What are the pros? Quick producer & low maint'nce

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

These grow so well in Southern California. In fact, they were the first plant to produce this year and that was from a highly neglected volunteer growing among my citrus trees. We pick them daily for a salad but they usually get eaten as snacks before the salad is made. I keep trying to save enough to pickle but they go like candy in our household. Never had a bitter one. Seem to stand up well to pests. Munchers have a permanent place in my heart, stomach and most certainly my garden.

Love these cucumbers

What are the pros? Wonderful taste!

What are the cons? Not so great for canning

Review:

I tried this variety for the first time last year, and they'll be a staple in my garden every year. These Muncher cucumbers are by far the best tasting cucumbers I've ever found. They're great for pulling off the vine and snacking on while you garden. Such a sweet but mellow flavor. The vines produce heavily and the fruits stay well on the vine to give you time to catch up with them. Even at larger sizes, the taste still surpasses other varieties. However, there is a big con when it comes to canning. They don't have as much of a crunch as I'd like to have for canned pickles. I guess they just don't stand up to the heat of processing as well. But they more than make up for that for fresh eating or making fresh pickles.

What are the pros? excellent flavor

Review:

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.

Review:

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.
