Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Brown Russian Cucumber Seeds
Brown Russian Cucumber Seeds (67 days)
Seed Package contains 1 gram 25-35 seeds
This has to be hands down the best tasting cucumber I have ever tasted.
Very crisp and mellow. No bitterness.
YES, it is very strange looking, but don't let that fool you.
Brown Russian is 3' around and is best harvested at 5-7" long.
It is a new favorite around here for salads or just eating right off the vine!
James Gregory's 1879 seed company catalog says about Brown Russian Cucumber seeds...
"The Russian netted cucumber is a native of the Ukraine country and very prolific; surpasses all other in hardiness; middle size, flesh white and the skin covered with a pretty brown network which imparts to the fruit a peculiar appearance."
