Started indoors and are picking small cukes almost every day. Great for eating with the skin on.
The Picolino cucumbers are great. The seedlings are a little fragile, but once the plants start climbing they are very tough. I'm having a hard time attracting bees to my suburban garden, but these plants keep setting lots of tasty, seedless cucumbers without any bees. Vines do need to climb, but they have a short nice length so a fairly short fence or trellis is sufficient. The cucumbers are tasty from gherkin size to whole dill size. The fruits get long before they get fat, so for salad use I like them about 4" long but only about 1" in diameter. At that size, they make petite, truly bite-size slices. Delivery took a few weeks, but I was warned about that in advance and the seeds were delivered when promised.
Great experience from ordering to receiving the seeds. Picolini has been started and seedlings are emerging! That is what I know at the moment.
These vines are veritable cucumber factories, producing lots of cucumbers continuously and surviving for a long time against heat, humidity, and disease pressure. As advertised, if you're not growing any other cucumber varieties nearby, they are essentially seedless. The skin is thin and easy to chew, and the flavor is quite good. There aren't always bees in my yard, but even without the bees nearly every flower turns into a cucumber. And there are a lot of flowers. Once the plant gets some size, one plant will make enough for salads and snacking. If you plant several plants, you'll have plenty for pickling or sharing with friends and neighbors. This is a vining cucumber, but the internode distance is shorter than many other cucumbers, so the vine length stays manageable for a long time. The vine will eventually get pretty long if you have a long growing season, but it won't take over the garden from day 1 like some other cucumbers I have grown.
