    Very crunchy cucumbers with good flavor and thin, smooth skin with no bitterness. Leave the skins on. I've been harvesting at about six to eight inches so not sure if they develop bitterness with age. They also make good bread and butter pickles. Will definitely plan to grow these again next year. Vines grew about five feet long.

    I grew these again in 2019 with even better results than last year. Picked them all summer long, every other day from about 6 plants. They're delicious too!

    Good-tasting slicing cucumber with smooth skin, also said to be good for pickling. Advertised as burpless, not seedless. I picked them at about 6-7" long. Average yield until they succumbed to a wilt, which hit almost all my cukes this year.
