Wow! Just last month I was lamenting having to commit planticide on the cucumber seedlings I placed in the Earthbox. Today, I have these delicious cucumbers.
I kid you not they are highly productive and sweet. The minute you bite into one you are instantly aware, without looking, that they are related to watermelons.
Cucumbers are perfect spa-style (thinly sliced into water) as well as picked and sliced with nothing on them.
These taste nothing like the cucumbers in the store and that’s a good thing.
I’m already planning to make way next year for the traditional Kirby cucumber for pickling. I can’t imagine not having the lovely bush slicer right next to it.
