A 1993 predominantly gynoecious hybrid slicer from Asgrow (Seminis). A very early (40 day) fancy cuke for freshmarket. It has resistance to scab, powdery mildew, downy mildew, anthracnose, cucumber mosaic virus, zucchini yellow mosaic virus, alternaria leaf spot, and downy mildew. Grows well and is the earliest cultivar that I have in this year.
