description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Early Russian'"

An early harvest and a long growing season, characterize this cucumber. With its mild, yet sweet taste, it provides fruit that is uniform in shape and size. The vines are also hardier than other varieties, making it a perfect choice for those zones with short growing seasons. An excellent choice as a slicer or pickled. Maturity in 55 days. Edited by S. Derr
