(60 days. Heirloom) 1935 AAS gold medal winner and still one of America’s favorites! A cucumber superstar, this classic has excellent flavor and is widely adapted. Named for its perfectly straight, 8-inch long fruit, this slicing cucumber has long been prized for its high quality, flavor, and even, deep green color. Well adapted throughout the US. Vigorous, productive vines and tolerant of mosaic virus. A good home garden variety that can be used for pickling as well as slicing. For perfect cukes, grow them on a fence or trellis.
