The mildest cucumber on the market, this early variety produces 10-inch long slicing cucumbers that are completely burpless, with no bitterness. Excellent sliced, but also fine for pickling when picked at a slightly smaller size. High yielding. This vining cucumber will appreciate growing up on a trellis.

    Beautiful plant with lots of blossoms but the cukes were awful! Very bitter. We could not eat them. And they were yellow to white not green. I won’t buy these again. I have had the best cukes with Straight Eights- that’s what I will go back to.

    Have 6 of these plants going for 3.5 months now and have lots of flowers, but no cucumbers yet. Wish I knew about this site before hand. All plants are a couple feet tall, and look great except missing something. Oh yeah, CUCUMBERS! Pulling them end of the season and going in compost bin. Now I have to go to the store when I want some cucumbers.

    We purchased 3 of these plants and all of the cucumbers so far are bitter. I’ve harvested at different times and sizes. All are pale green/yellow. Very disappointed. I’ll never purchase these again. Beautiful plants and flowers-horrible cucumbers.

    Ok so I gave the taste 4 stars BUT I buy this plant every year, last year was a dud, I pulled the plant in mid season because it was all bitter and yellow but that was my fault, I failed to water regularly and didn’t know the trick to revive the cucumbers. This year though, my plant accidently went without a watering because my child ended up in the hospital for a week and the temps outside were over 100, but I came back home and watered the cucumber and it came back. The plant itself from day one was always green but the fruit itself comes out a greenish/yellow. I still have the plant growing and I still harvest the plant. SO here is your tip on how to still enjoy your “bitter” cucumbers… Cut both ends off and rub the ends on the rest of the cucumber until lots and lots of slimy, creamy liquid comes off both ends, do this for a few mins on both side of the cucumber and now rinse off the slimy, creamy liquidy stuff and enjoy your cucumber… I was a skeptic too about this until my husband and I both tried it and wow, the cucumbers are not bitter anymore…….IF your cucumber is still bitter toss it and try again, don’t give up just because one or two are bitter, there is always a few bitter ones from the plant. Its worth a try. Some years I get amazing cucumbers and some years my cucumbers are bitter but it doesn’t stop me from trying every year…. Its not always the plant that is causing the bitterness or how you water or grow it, sometimes its the weather that causes it. Good Luck Gardening!!

    First time growing this cucumber, very large yield, sweet tasting cucumbers, just wash and slice, no peeling, we have enjoyed them in salads and just eating them as a snack with Ranch dressing or Blue cheese, have gave away many to family and friends and everyone that ate them said they were delicious and easy on the stomach. We have also sold them to the neighboring produce markets, this is from three plants. Will definitely plant again next year. We live in the piedmont area of North Carolina. The ground was always moist where these were planted as we had placed leaves in the garden the prior year and it kept the soil moist.

    Just planted mine recently, researching this type it looks like inconsistent watering and unbalanced soil could be the cause of most mutant or bitter cukes… haven’t had one big enough to test that theory but if I do I’ll report it. :)

    I tend to agree with those that said these were bitter. I removed the skin and it helped get rid of some of the bitterness, but growing my own I know that no pesticides were used on them and I like eating the skin which contains most of the nutrients. They also were very pale color, nothing like the picture on this website or the information on the plant stick in the container. Bought my plants at the Home Center (Raleigh, NC area) at the beginning of May and this was the only variety they had. Plants are producing well, but since I am not happy with the taste, I will not plant these again!

    Raised bed garden, Mid-South Tennessee (between Nashville and Alabama). They grew curved and as they got bigger, the curve straightened out. I harvested 7 today (almost everything on the plant) and none of them were without at least a portion of the blossom end still curved. A couple of the biggest ones were almost as long as a 2-liter soda bottle. Pale pale green and yellow. And they were AWFUL tasting. Thankfully, I only planted one plant and won’t buy this one again.

    Producing a lot of cukes. Very good and mild to taste. Planted in ground with mix of clay and potting mix.

    I grow these every year, they are our favorite. I grow them climbing a trellis so the cukes hang down and grow straight so have no flat/white spot or rot from laying on ground. Also easy to weed and harvest this way. Love these and other plants I get from Bonnie and have never been disappointed with them.

    Good yield, ok taste, Mildew problems!: Mine are vining on a trellis for air circulation, but I'm still having disease issues! First powdery mildew. Now mosaic. I have Marketmores next to them, which are not having the same issues. They taste good, but you have to peel off the skin, which is bitter.

    Lots of cuckes and mild taste: Just picked the first 9″ cuke and it was delish and very mild. Planted in potting soil and lots of water. Leaves wilt a bit in the late afternoon sun, but perk up again when in the shade. Lots of flowers, so expecting a great harvest.

    this burpless cumcumber on my to-buy list: we grew this brand & type in 2011 our 1st year to plant cucumbers, we loved them (all 8 in our family…from 3 yrs old on up). They are burpless, we eat these cucumbers with the skin on. In 2012 I didn't want to buy them as I thought they were expensive and wanted to try an heirloom. 2012 ended up being a dry year for us in WI, I didn't water them enough & cucumbers did not go well. I'll be buying this one this year as we like burpless. This time we have a trellis ready for the vine to grow up.

    Not sure about these yet: I purchased 3 of these cucumber plants this year. They are growing very well. I picked my first one about two weeks ago. I didn't measure the size but it looked like the size of a standard cucumber, however it wasn't as green as other cucumbers I've planted in the past. I washed and sliced it and it was bitter so I was disappointed. I was thinking that maybe I didn't let it stay on the vine long enough. I also noticed that my cucumbers are curved. They look mutated. Not sure what thats all about.

    Disappointed in cucumber crop: The cucumber plant we bought has grown relatively quickly and we were looking forward to a good crop of veggies! The first cucumbers we got were a very pale green/yellow, not at all what I pictured for a cucumber. We peeled the skin and sliced it up for a snack. Both of my kids love cucumbers and were very excited to try the plants they had grown, but they were both grossed out by the bitter flavor of the vegetable. None of the subsequent cucumbers we have taken off are any better. It does make me feel better that we are not the only ones experiencing this problem. I thought it was something I did. We are very disappointed in this crop and will not be purchasing again in the future.

    similar problems as others, bad plants: I am an experienced gardner and have experienced the same problems as others who have posted. I believe a bad strain of cucumber was distributed. I bought mine at walmart and it made some beautify leaves with a lot of blooms. However, the cucumbers are strangly shaped (curved, small on one end, bulbos on the other), more like a squash and they are very bitter, they will not turn dark green, are very pale and very bitter. Ruined my usually wonderful garden bounty.

    Very Disappointed: I have attempted cucumbers twice in the past with not much luck. I bought one plant this year in hopes it might take. It actually took and went crazy. The yield has been amazing, however all but one of the cucumbers so far have been bitter or tasted like they were marinated in funky lime juice. I tried taking them earlier and leaving them later, neither with success. Some have grown like the letter C or curled back on itself and bugs decided to make homes in the curled area. Another big complaint that I have is that the seeds are very woody and are present in the small and large cucumbers. I was happy to finally grow cucumbers and save some money on them, however now they are inedible. These cucumbers also didn't turn dark green they stayed a pale green or pale yellow like spaghetti squash during growth.

    Not Great: This is my first time growing cucumber and I LOVE cucumber so i was very excited. I've got three cucumbers on there now ready to harvest. I just picked the first one of the year and the taste is SUPER bitter – even when I peeled it. I tried making a cucumber salad with it and the cherry tomatoes cut the bitterness some but still not delicious as hoped. Also, these are not burpless. Won't grow this hybrid ever again.

    hit or miss: 1st time growing cukes, so I only put 2 plants in my square foot garden. 1 plant did OK, but only produced 6 cukes, 2 of which were inedible. The other plant is producing the mutant cuke, huge on one end, skinny on the other. NC sandhills
