Oh yes, I recommend these cucumbers. I can depend on them.
I growcukes for pickles. Packing only 25 seeds per pack seems a waste. I bought 3 packs this year and still ended up needing more. (Germination rate approx 65 to 70 %). I wish you would increase to number of seeds to what most of your competitors do. I like your company and wish you success.
Everything was great!! I have tons of cucumbers coming up!! So excited to learn to make pickles this year!!
My Calypso cukes only bore for one month before they succumbed to powdery mildew. But I don't fault the plants. Every cucumber I've ever grown has gotten diseased. But these pumped out 99.12 pounds of fruit before they bit the dust. That was from 12 plants in about 15 feet of row. Next time I would plant them farther apart, both for better air circulation and to make it easier to find all the fruits. Pick these every day and you will have more crunchy pickles than you know what to do with.
We have grown Calypso cucumber several years. Here on the coast of NC we start our first crop in late March for May harvest. A second crop started in June takes us through late summer. In mid-August we start our third crop for fall harvest. We have found this cucumber to be disease resistant in the hot and humid climate.
