Product Description
This is one reliable and beloved cuke! An All-America Selections winner from 1935, Straight Eight Slicing Cucumber remains a garden favorite for its productivity and quality fruits. The plants bear heavy yields of dark green, perfectly straight, 8-in. fruits. The uniform fruits have small seed cavities and crisp, fine-grained flesh—and they're excellent for slicing and eating fresh and in salads.
