What a FANTASTIC cucumber! My first of the season and probably the best cuke I’ve ever tasted. Its a North Carolina Heirloom Pickling Cucumber (seed from from Sand Hill Preservation Center). They describe it as “a wonderful 2″ to 3″, blocky, creamy white cucumber. Makes superb dill pickles. Stay crisp when pickled.” I could add: a fantastic fresh lemony flavor and incredibly crisp fresh off the vine! I can’t wait for more.

Cheers to the first of the season!
