Basic green cucumber. Good smell! OK taste. Best eaten within three days of picking. Prolific and easy to tend. Had plenty to share with the neighbors since I was eating mostly Lemon Cucumbers instead.

Very poor performance, no disease. Maybe I didn’t treat them right but won’t be growing them again.

Very poor yield, compared to other varieties grown. Fruit are small and misshapen, do not fill out completely. Long growing time.
