Positive Farmerdill On Aug 11, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Giant sized, burpless fruits can grow to 10-13" when grown on a trellis. Sweet tasting, not bitter with a crunchy texture. A gynoecious hybrid with vigorous vining habit. Ready to harvest about 55 days after planting. It is an excellent cuke, great size, great tasting, and prolific yields.
