These cucumbers are definitely a prolific producer! 100% germination direct sowing. Crisp, kept well in fridge and pickled beautifully! Bees were in love with all the flowers too!

In the past I always used the Boston Pickling cuke then one year I tried this one. This pickling cucumber is epic! I am in Southern Ohio, zone 6 and these are true to their description. My plants are literally not affected by disease and produce in to the cold spells of the season. The quality of the cucumbers are superior and make excellent pickles, relish, chow, etc. Try them- you will be happy!
