My last plant isn’t dead yet, but it looks to be getting there, I don’t expect any of the remaining baby cuc’s to grow any further.
I got a total of 79 edible cucumbers off of 3 plants. Another 5 were tossed in the compost because they “looked funny”.
Two of my 3 plants died back in the middle of July, both reached the 3ft mark and stopped growing. The 3rd reached a height of 57 inches (or 3 inches short of 5feet). So much for the reviews that stated that they rarely got over 3ft in height……
These are awesome little cucumbers. Perfectly sized for a snack, or a personal salad, or for slicing into slices for pickles. Wonderfully tasty, raw or as pickles. Without the bitterness you can sometimes get in storebought cucumbers.
I did have some issues with Striped Cucumber Beetles. And I’m half convinced that they’re why the two plants died when they did. But I’m going to try growing this again next year I think, cause they were just that tasty!
Edit: I was wrong, got another 6! cucumbers off the plant since this was posted, bringing the number to 85.
