After millennia of indigenous co-adaptation, collaborations at Cornell inspired the brilliance of many delectably disease-resistant cucumbers brilliantly adapted for short seasons. Organic Silver Slicer Cucumber is a shining example! We adore Silver Slicer for her depth of flavor, thin smooth skin and juicy-crisp texture. With resistance to Powdery Mildew, plan for abundance even in the late season.
