Burpee has a cucumber called "Yellow Submarine".
Has anyone grown this cucumber? If you did, how well did it produce
and how good did it taste? Thank you in advance for all replies.
When I was about nine years old I decided to grow a vegetable
garden. Not knowing any better I planted what we had in the
It is a large pickling cucumber from Seminis,. Sold by a lot of seed
companies. Here is Seminis description :"A 2001 introduction from

maintaining a very small seed cavity. They make wonderful sliced
crunchy pickles in these large sizes, the perfect thing to stack on
sandwiches to give them some extra zip, especially on submarine
sandwiches and burgers. Add some garlic and hot red peppers to your
pickling brine, and you'll be in hog heaven with every sandwich bite
