I love cucumbers. Simple salads of sliced cukes with a little dressing and I'm set. I could eat them with most every summer meal.
My go to cucumber variety is marketmore 76. It grows well here. They don't get too long and they stay fairly straight.
I also have white wonder growing. I got the seeds free with a seed order last year.
I planted twice as many of the marketmore 76 than the white wonder, but I'm harvesting twice as many of the white wonder than the marketmore 76.
White wonder is much easier to find in the cucumber vines.
Maybe I just haven't found all of the others. ;-)
Marketmore 76 has a few prickly points as all cucumbers do.
White wonder is COVERED with prickly points. I seriously wear gloves when I harvest them. They take extra scrubbing with the veggie brush.
Have only had a few be slightly bitter this summer.
I would say the cucumbers have been a success.
