I have been growing the same cukes for years. Diva, Sweet Success, Alibi, and Burpee's Burpless. This year, I skipped the Burpless and went with Sir Crunch a lot......which is supposed to be a mega producer right up until frost. Well, I can already attest to mega producing, nice crunchy cuke with small seeds. Fondly nick named Sir Grows a lot, it keeps trying to spread over two staking systems.

Kathy,

Please provide us with pictures of the planting as well as pics of the fruit itself...maybe in your hand or layed next to a ruler for sizing comparisons. 

Thank you!

OK will do, but I eat them pretty quickly once they are off the vine....I will try to pause before consuming for a picture!

As requested here is a pic, please note the Sir Crunch A Lot's are the first couple cukes on the left next to the apple. The middle are Sweet Success and the ones on the right are Alibi (little big, but they were hiding for a day or two.)
