Chose this parthenocarpic variety from (Park) seed to grow in containers/trellis inside screen house. Sowed 4 seeds indoors mid-March w/100% germination; transplanted mid-April, picked 1st 7" cuke yesterday - couldn't wait until they reached 14" ;) Seedless with mild flavor. Very prolific so far. Will grow again.

I have not tried this one yet, but will add it to my list of seeds to try.

Container friendly, all female flowers tilll the first fruits set, then male flowers appear and fruit set stops.

Love it! Even when it gets really large it is tasty. No spines on the skin, seedless, burpless, more delicate flavor.

Decent vigor and crop. Start picking fruit in August. Makes good relish.

Very very heavy producing. Just about all the female flowers (I don't see any male flowers on these plants) are turning into fruit! No duds!! And the cukes are very tasty. I pick them a little early, when they are about 7-8 inches long and the taste and texture are just so wonderful. I am glad I grew this variety! The plants do get very tall - it is only the middle of June and the 7ft of the trellis has already been used up.
