Smooth skinned slicers with mild taste. They can get up to a foot long, but I picked them at 9" for fewer seeds. Only a slight curl when grown on a trellis. Did not produce as many fruit as my other cukes this year. I can't confirm the "burpless" claims since I've grown at least a dozen different varieties and never had one that made me burp!
