This was sent to me as a substitute for County Fair. At first I was disappointed since Co. Fair is the only bacterial wilt resistant cuke & very productive. I decided to grow it along side the County Fair & to my amazement it actually grew faster, outproduced, & out lived the County Fair. I made several quarts of delicious bread & butter pickles & the cukes were also good in salads. If cuke beetles are a problem in your area, I suggest giving this one a try. Oh, & it also survived an extended hot dry spell when nothing was setting fruit but the cukes.
