Fool proof?

This is always the best producing cuke in my container vegetable garden. I grow it in 15 gallon pots and it’s the first cuke to harvest and is sweet and never bitter even if you miss one and it gets huge. This year I started them indoors in mid April which was a little early since the weather has been cooler than average. The plants got pretty tall before I could plant them out in early June. I do protect them if it falls below 50 here at night with clear vinyl covers. I’ve already harvested 2 cukes and it’s only June 25! The Japanese cucumber Natsu I planted at the same time barely has little tiny fruit. I highly recommend this variety for cool climate areas like Seattle.

Great taste, no burps or other digestive effects

I have tried multiple varieties of cucumber to get a good tasting slicer that doesn't back fire on me. Everyone has different tolerances but this one worked for me. Before trying Sweet Slice, I could have a single cucumber (with truffle salt) and it was tasty but if I had more than one, I would feel the effects. Sweet slice I can eat several times through the day. I made sandwiches with them, When I really had an abundance, I put a bunch through the blender with Kale and a little honey and froze them for ice cubes. Delish. They are definitely my new go to slicing cucumber. Hope others see the benefit of them.

Super tasty

These are hands down some of the best cucumbers I've grown. They produce such high-quality cucumbers even in the cold, and when it gets hot. It's not too high-maintenance, and the overall quality and taste of the cucumber are outstanding. Super tasty!

Great cuke

These do very well in less than ideal conditions ( in a pot in part shade)
and produce plenty of cucumbers even when the temperatures are cool. Seem to take a break when it gets really hot ,but I fertilize and it keeps producing after that. The flavor is sweet with very few seeds and don't need peeling.

Cucumis sativus A favorite in cuisine worldwide, cucumbers possess health benefits too numerous to mention. Incorporate cucumbers in your diet to aid with weight loss, as they are exceptionally low in calories (only about 8 calories in 1/2 cup), aid digestion, and rid toxins from the body. Among the more unusual qualities of the humble cuke is its ability to ease skin irritations. Use a piece of cucumber skin to soothe burns.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

• Cucumbers perform best in fertile, well-drained soil with a pH 5.5-7.0
• Consistent, even watering is critical for best plant growth and fruit development
• Raised beds, plastic mulch, and trellising can improve yields, keep fruit straight and scab free
• Incorporate a shovelful of compost and 1/2 cup TSC's Complete fertilizer per hill
