Incorrect order fulfillment


I ordered Edmonson but the fruit that is setting on the plants does not look like this picture. I think I was sent incorrect seeds

Good all around cucumber


Love these cucumbers. I use the smaller ones for canning, and the larger ones have great flavor. This is the only variety that hasn’t given me bitter cucumbers in our soil.

Best Cucumber


I love these!!!

Superhero cucumbers


These are incredibly prolific and disease free here in eastern Kansas. Planted five of these and five Japanese Climbers on a trellis in pretty poor soil. The JCs were very good, but the Edmonsons were like Jack-in-the-Beanstalk magnificent. Odd looking but great taste. They kept squeezing out cucumbers after everything else had given up the ghost in fall.
