    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!

    (60 days). This gynoecious (produces mostly female flowers) slicing cucumber produces huge 10-inch, burpless fruits. Testers were impressed with hybrid plants' ability to withstand adverse weather. Flavor is average, but fruits contain only a few large seeds.
