This is first time I grow this type of cucumber and I am pleasantly surprised. It was started in heated greenhouse on April 12, got through 38F one night when my heater stopped working. Was planted in the garden on May 11, much earlier than I would normally do, but I had to leave for two weeks and can't leave them in the pots, so I covered it with Agribon and left on May 19. To my surprise, when I return on June 3 the cucumbers didn't die, but produced each a couple of cukes. The taste is excellent, it is pickling cucumber that is very nice for fresh eating - crunchy, but the skin is tender, unlike many pickling types. The grow habit looks nice, they do not fill in fast, but produce as they grow. They are parthenocarpic, which means they do not need pollination and can be grown in green house or net house as I grow them. They also seems to have only female flowers, so every flower produces the fruit. Couple tests still left: pickling results and powdery mildew test, that will come later in the game. But for now, I think I found it early pickling parthenocarpic cucumbers that produces tasty fruit and big numbers. On the picture bellow you can see the whole plant, keep in mind few cuckes already picked from it.
