Ratings & Reviews
Excellent for pickling
Very productive variety, kept growing late into the season. Small but sweet fruits with high turnover rate. Can pick when very small and surprisingly refreshing!
My favorite for eating fresh this year!
Everything you want in a cucumber to eat fresh off the vine. They are tasty and crispy with no bitter notes. They also seem to last a good while on the counter if you don't eat the immediately.
