Available from evergreenseeds.com which offers the following description; "This variety is one of the best hybrid cucumbers recently developed for open field cropping and has become very popular in markets in Korea and other countries. High quality cucumbers, 1.5" x 13" in size and dark green skin with white spines, are very crispy and delicious, excellent for salads and pickling. Plants grow vigorously and are resistant to powdery mildew and downy mildew, suitable for summer crops. This hybrid variety produces predominantly female flowers and lots of fruits for a long time, setting fruits continuously into late in the growing season."
