What are the pros? Early producer
What are the cons? Bitter when left on the vine
Great pickling variety, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking to make cornichons or smaller dill pickles. They're not a multitasking cucumber though, in my garden: they got bitter if allowed to grow >2-3" or so, and so I didn't like eating the larger fruits raw. This is an easy mistake to make considering how quickly the plants churn out cucumbers, and how easy it is to miss a fruit or two! In the future, I think I'll only grow these alongside other, milder cucumbers that are better for raw eating, just to have some variety. Or maybe I need more pickle recipes. :)

What are the pros? Taste, high yeilds
What are the cons? Nothing!!
I planted these and ignored them. They flourished in a dry hot summer, started producing early and kept going. Make lovely pickles and grow like weeds. Didn't even bother fertilizing.

What are the pros? Super productive
What are the cons? None
We had a very wet year in Edmonton, AB (Zone 3) and it was extremely productive. Even the larger cukes didn't get bitter so we sliced them. Due to the wet spring, only 1/4 seeds germinated but even with the 1 plant we had more cucumbers than we knew what to do with.

What are the pros? Vigorous growers and producers
What are the cons? wish I'd planted more:(
I grew these just as a test to see how they did out here in Oregon and am really impressed these are vigorous growers and put out lots of beautiful tiny pickles exactly what I wanted I'm planting a whole row of them next year to do all my pickles, these I was looking for to do Cornichons but they would make great gherkin dills as well, I'm sold!!!

What are the pros? Good flavor
Excellent pickling cuke for cornichons or gherkins. Stays sweet up to 3" or so, but larger cukes get bitter, so it's not the best choice if you want to make larger pickles.
