Reviews

Dependeble and prolific

I had near perfect indoor germination rates and 85% transplant success with a short hardening off period in amended heavy clay soil and full sun. My plants are disease-free, growing large (4 - 6 feet at begin of production time) and fruiting well. I also tried some in my mother's sandy but nutrient amended soil in 85% sunny spot. poor germination and slow growth. Flavor is mild and fresh, texture is firm and crisp. Producing a cuke a day total between my four plants.
