This hybrid is a consistent performer under diverse environmental conditions. This gynoecious (produces mostly female flowers) pickling variety produces heavy yields of uniform, compact medium dark green fruit with minimal white spines. The 3″ x 1″ (7.5 cm x 2.5 cm) wide fruit make excellent pickles. Very good disease tolerance.
