Default Cucumber - Sugar Crunch Hybrid

This is the second time I've tried Sugar Crunch Hybrid cucumber, and I'm very pleased with it. From only two vines, today I picked five cucumbers, all about 5" long, perfect for sandwiches or salad. You don't even need to peel them. Skin is very tender and they are crunchy and sweet.


I understand they're also used for pickling. They look like pickles: skin is rough and warty rather than smooth.


Seed source was Burpee.

Have you had Sweet Success or Diva? If so, how does it compare?

Never tried Sweet Success or Diva. My previous favorite was Sweet Slice Hybrid, available from Park Seed. Park isn't carrying it this year, but a few other companies (Jung, Shumway) have it.



Park is currently offering Slice More as a replacement for Sweet Slice.
