    • Generally Cuke Slicing Cucumber – Ordered from Fedco on 12/27/2023 based on Farmer Pam’s recommendation and its good disease resistance. Was named General Lee. “A favorite of many, this gynoecious cuke holds its place in our catalog as the best choice for overcoming stress and diseases and for performing well in cold summers, with high yields of uniform straight dark-green white-spined 8–8½” slicers that don’t peter out in the halcyon days of summer. Retains both color and good flavor even in heat. Resistant to scab, CMV, PM and DM.”
