Seeds germinated well. After heavy thining I had 6 strong healthy plants. Within 4 weeks, all but one had died. I had a light powdery mildew infection, but other than that Im still unsure why they just shrivelled up!
The one remaining plant showed signs of PM, but ended up supplying so much fruit, I dont know what I would have done with 6 plants full anyway!
Flavour was intense and sweet, the skin was a bit tougher than expected, with some spiney little bumps that rubbed off easily. I have included a picture (feb 2007).

Very tasty and quite productive.
This cuke is known as a 'salad' or 'slicer' the thin sweet skins allow it to be sliced without peeling first. A pickling cuke will have a bitter skin that you have to peel off if you want to use it fresh.
Nice fruits about 8" long are perfect for any fresh table use.
