Very prolific and great taste!

Was not sure about seeds as they are from a few years back and I had not planted them until April, 2016. They are growing on a wire trellis, about 4 foot long vines and must have 200+ blossoms as of today, 7/26/16. God help us if only half produce the cuke of this variety. They are excellent in taste, crisp and fairly thin with absolutely no seeds once sliced. I hope they are good for pickling since there are so many large fruits. Very happy with this cuke!
