Another gem from our friend Casey Piscura, the talented market grower and seed breeder out of Carbondale, Colorado.
From Casey: "Excellent vigor and adaptable resistance to powdery mildew in this diverse collection of cucumbers. This grex (open pollinated interbreeding population) is the culmination of years of combining and selecting from many of the open-pollinated cucumber strains available. Diversity in the theme of delicious pickling cucumbers is what you get with this seed. Wild Mountain Seeds' selection from this diversity is for earliness, longevity of production, and flavor. Very good plant vigor produces cucumbers that are delicious eaten fresh or pickled. A truly beautiful collection of diversity within the theme of delicious productive pickling cucumbers!"
Can be eaten fresh or pickled equally the same.
