"Parthenocarpic variety for the greenhouse or the field. Dark green fruits are long, straight and uniform. Thick skins are smooth with small white spines and have a striking dark green color and vigorous sheen that hold up well during harvesting and shipping. Average fruit length is 8.5-9 and 1.5 wide with blunt ends. Recovers quickly after cool periods. Intermediate resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus and Cucumber Vein Yellow Virus." High Mowing Seed
