I grew these this year in 18 gallon storage containers and they did very well. I planted two to a container with cages for them to run on.
The plants were compact but still ran three feet up.
They tasted good and kept us in cucumbers until mid August from planted seed the first weekend in May.
I have two more up now and look forward to those fruiting.

These are good tasting cucumbers. They hold up well in the intense humid heat. Despite their being bush type, they do have a tendency to want to sneak into neighboring beds.
