Dating back to the 1920's, this heirloom cucumber definitely lives up to its name. These prolific plants have a naturally rounded habit and will put out oodles of 4-6" long, bright green fruit with small black spines. Go ahead and slice them up for salads as they become ripe (they are crispy and wonderful) - you will still have more than enough to get many jars of pickles from this plant. Certified organic.
