Heirloom. Named for its perfectly straight, 8-inch long fruit, this slicing cucumber has long been prized for its high quality, flavor, and even, deep green color. Well adapted throughout the US. Vigorous, productive vines that benefit from trellising.

My single, containerized straight 8 has produced fairly well despite suffering with several curcubit diseases all along. The cucumbers however have been on the bitter side, a trait which is prominent in the striaght 8 from what I have read. Thought by researchers in the Northwest to be caused by cool weather, that is not the problem here in North Florida. I will choose a different cucumber to grow next time, one that is less prone to be bitter. I liked one called Green Ice I grew a few years ago. (Posted on June 14, 2012)
