I love cucumbers but I had almost had to quite eating them the last year or two because they stayed with me all day. I finally discoved the Burpless and belive me what they say it true. So I can eat cucumbers again and not burp all day long. LOL.......

Very good producer too.

Great for growing on a trellis. Lots of fruit with good flavor. Not a good pickler.

I like to train these cukes on a trellis from a flower box. It makes a nice screen and provides lots of great cukes for summer dining.
