This is a fine Open Pollinated Persian cucumber that is ideal for organic market growers or home gardeners. It has very thin, dark green skin, and the crisp flesh is sweet, juicy, burpless, and never bitter. It's a truly gourmet variety that is highly prolific, producing up to 15 fruits per plant. Average size is 6-8", although the fruit holds its quality and can be picked anywhere from 4 to 10" long. (of course, if you pick baby cukes, you can expect to harvest even more.
