I grew 2 of these in a 12" x 15" plastic pot, and they were great. Picked my first cucumbers from the pot in early to mid June, after a cool and intermittently wet spring, and the two vines produced 2 to 3 cucumbers a day for the first month, 1 to 2 a day for the next 2 or 3 weeks, and then about 1 a day to now (August 12).

Great little cukes, no bitterness, thin tender skin. Even when left on the plant until they're a little yellow on the ends they have small seeds and don't need to be peeled. Will of course climb on anything they touch-I've given them a few corkscrew supports, sunflowers, and zinnias to latch onto.
