Product Description
This high-yielding burpless cucumber produces slender, 12-inch cucumbers with smooth, mid-green skins and faint stripes covering the necks. It has a sweet, bitter-free flavor—the perfect cucumber variety for slicing and fresh eating! This variety has low levels of cucurbitacin, the burp-inducing compound that makes cucumbers taste bitter, so you don't have to worry about burping or bitterness. You can harvest the fruits for pickling when they're 2-4 inches long or wait until they've reached their full size and use for making tzatziki sauce or summer salads. The vigorous plants tend to experience less problems from cucumber beetles than other varieties. They bear good resistance to Downy mildew and Powdery mildew diseases. Zones 3-9. 55 days to maturity.
