Heavy crops of perfectly sized cukes!

I'm in zone 7 in the mid-Atlantic. In mid-May, I transplanted 10 seedlings into strawbales I prepped this spring, and they've produced heavily for about four weeks now (I'm writing this in mid-July). The plants vined up the cattle panels I provided, and I'd guess they're about five feet tall now.

The cucumbers are almost entirely perfectly straight, and even when they get large, their seeds remain small and the flavor is great. The skin isn't paper-thin, but neither is it very thick. I never bother to peel them, and I think they're great. I believe I've picked four or five gallons of cucumbers, and so far I've put up 30 pints of pickles.

If you're looking for a productive pickling cucumber that can also be enjoyed fresh, try this one. I'll definitely be growing it next year!

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
