I am pickled by the results

Seeds germinate well, plants grow well, but all develop a yellow color as they start getting near mature size. I don't mind the color, but a bit of a surprise to offer people a yellow pickle!

Small pickling sized cucumbers ready to pick very early in the season. Tolerated partial sun, a wet season, and withstood multiple attacks by pests. Transplanted without a fuss.

I grow a garden every year and sell at the local farmers market. People line up for the cucumbers that I grow. Thanks Park Seed. Only down fall, you have to plant them far apart or they will grow together and you cant see where to step to pick produce.

Well a heat wave came immediately thereafter and killed a couple despite my best efforts of watering and care. The rest all had spots of bleaching on leaves and stems (should have hardened off longer before planting). So those that didn't die entirely seemed stunted and bleached and didnt grow at all....for about 7-10 days. And then they TOOK OFF! In my heavy clay, virgin soil, no less, that I just reclaimed from a back field behind the house this year for a garden. They grew nearly two feet tall straight up with very thick and hearty stems before finally falling over and vining. I built some trellises for them shortly thereafter which turned out to be a smart idea as these are EXTREMELY HEAVY yielding. I tried to fill in the patches in the row where a couple
