Gardeners' Notes:

I grew these in May 2006 and they were excellent tasting and great yields. They sold very well at the local Farmer's Market. However, I started a fall crop in late July-early August and they started fruiting in late September-early October and the cucumbers are short and fat instead of long and fat like the spring/summer ones. Also, they are little bitter and hard compared to the earlier ones. I wonder if this variety did not like the heat. It stayed in the 90s and dry here until just a couple of weeks ago.

Sweet and wonderful! I'm getting loads of cukes on my White Wonder vines, and am impressed with its vigor and productivity! The white color is novel and fun!! I will definitely grow this variety again, I enjoy growing fruits and veggies that are "different". We've been handing out white cukes and purple carrots all summer :)

It is a small slicer (6 x 2.25 inches) and creamy white in color. It is still a great novelty. Flavor is good and productivity is high.
