I chose this variety because it's said to only grow a five-foot long vine, or so, and I have limited space. I only intended to plant out two from the seeds I sowed, but it turned out that two I planted out first in containers, thinking I'd give them away, developed faster than the two in the ground. So now I have four. When I transplanted them from their winter sowing jug, I could smell the cucumber scent on the roots! And I am thrilled that all four plants now have fruit. Couldn't be happier with the plants so far. (Seed packet was purchased from Seed Savers Exchange.)
