Review:

I live in a hot area of CA and have grown straight eight cukes for years. I have never had a problem with bitterness. Just keep them watered regularly and don't let the soil dry out. They are straight when they are allowed to climb on fencing which instead of left to grow on the ground. They are great if picked 6" but better left to fill out. Use a milk solution on are regular basis and before you see mildew. Great tasting cucumber after picked and still in the garden. Always have a salt shaker with you or a lemon!

What are the pros? Easy to trellis

What are the cons? BITTER, poor wilt resistance

Review:

I would not recommend these for anyone in a hot climate. Whenever the heat cranked up here, the cukes turned very bitter. Production was fairly good, though it came in "waves"; had a few long spells of no cukes. Poorly set/ deformed fruits despite abundant pollinators and watering. Appreciated some shade whenever the sun became brutal in mid-summer

What are the pros? flavor, size

What are the cons? wildlife enjoys flavor too

Review:

This is an AWESOME Cucumber for Florida! Withstands the heat, rain and more heat. HUGE, wonderful flavor - Never Bitter - soil out West must be totally different. I am amazed at how fast they grow and how large these cucumbers really are. Next year the raccoons and squirrels won't be able to get to all the cucumbers I plant!
