I've ordered this item for years from Pinetree. It does well growing here in the Upper Midwest, zone 4 (zone 3 pre-2012 ). What I enjoy most is the eatin' - this 'Armenian' strain is very much preferred over 'Armenian' able to be had at big-box stores. The latter ones have darker-green skin that make their 'Armenian', sometimes also referred to as 'Striped Serpent', much worse than Pinetree's strain; the darker skin is much more fibrous, bitter, & tough than the pale-skin one sold here. The lighter one somehow is more refreshing in summer than most cukes,
If there's one thing I must have from Pinetree it's 'Armenian'.
