(aka Special Dark Green) Picked fresh and eaten raw, this is a crisp and juicy cucumber ideal for slicing or showcased in a salad, tartine, or salsa. Dependable and almost never bitter, the fruits measure 5" long and 2" in diameter. Introduced around 1910 by the Jerome B. Rice Seed Company of Cambridge, New York. Originated with George Starr of Royal Oak, Michigan, who discovered it in a crop of Davis Perfect (now extinct). 55-60 days. ±1,100 seeds/oz.
