Pretty cucumber, a little on the bitter side.

By: on 20 March 2016
These are attractive cucumbers and vigorous climbers. They are however a little bitter. It probably wouldn't be noticed that much mixed in a salad but these aren't for snacking on in my opinion. The bitterness is mostly in the skin though, so you can easily peel it off. The flesh itself is very nice.
