What are the pros? great flavor, hardy, beautiful
What are the cons? nothing really
I started growing these in my own garden to deter thieves from grabbing all my cucumbers. Because of the color, folks thought they were rotten and left them alone. (Another grower even scolded me for letting so many cukes yellow on the vine. I just smiled.) They've since become a staple at our production and teaching gardens because they are delicious, crispy and juicy, and hold up very well against hot, dry weather, pests, and disease. They're great for working with kids or harvest staff because they are easy to see, and easy to judge when they are ripe, so there's less wasted harvest. They are great for fresh eating, and make beautiful pickles either alone, or in a jar with other color cucumbers. The color changes from subtle yellow to bright mustard to deepening orange-brown as they mature, and you can eat them at most of those stages. Once you give folks a taste of them, they'll keep asking for them at your farm stand. Very prolific, and also lovely for edible landscaping.
