This is the BESt green cucumber!!! I love it fresh....tender crisp and the skin is thin and the taste is incredible!!! I highly recommend this cuke..........Not for pickling though, superior for eating, it gets mushy with pickling.

I have grown these for a number of years and have always found them prolific, thin skinned, sweet, and suitable for fresh eating and minor canning. They make OK pickles.

This year I started them in coir pots to give them a head start. It worked. I started them on 4/2/09 and planted pot and all 5/13/09. Had fresh cukes 6/29/09. The early start gave me the best crop ever. Will start inside again.

Great tasting and high yielding variety. The only downside is they get too big a little quicker than some other varieties I have grown.
