Excellent mild, burpless, tender but crunchy variety. Has a great hard to describe crispness we find irresistible! Have grown it for three yrs on a bamboo teepee and the cukes grow long and straight with very good yields. Poorer conditions one yr still gave a smaller but fine quality crop. Visitors (esp. other gardeners) always rave about them! Highly recommended!

Doesn't appear to get too fat or seedy. Wonderful all around eating cucumber. Even made bread and butter pickles with it.
