cucumber taste test
I have a bumper crop of cucumbers this year!
Four varieties from the left are: Tokiwa, Sweet Success, North Carolina Pickling, and Diva. In our taste test last evening the unanimous winner (two tasters) was Diva. I've tried for years to grow Diva and this is the first year I have gotten nice vines and big pretty Diva cukes. Nice and crisp, mild and just overall delicious.
Next were a tie: Tokiwa (delicious and crisp, but large seeds) and Sweet Success (not quite as good taste as Diva and Tokiwa, but nice and crisp). The pickler (which is still fantastic - I love the blocky white fruits with tiny green seeds) was the least crisp and flavorful of the four.
