2021 Terrible year, completely descimated due to powdery mildew. Got all of one fruit.
2019 This was a bad year for cucumbers all around, and the cool wet weather definitely affected this variety. I had quite a bit of fruit that aborted when the rains came, and what did stay on the vine was delayed in ripening quite a bit.
2018 Really awesome grower! Did extremely well, even in higher heat. Didn't show signs of blight or stress until the wild temperature swings in late August/early September. A pickling cucumber, but awesome for fresh eating too if skins are taken off, or harvested when very young. Nice fresh flavour, very crisp.
