Diva is simply delectable, with thin, tender skin, crisp flesh, and a flavor that combines sweetness with a genuine cucumber bite impossible to find in the bland supermarket varieties today. It arises very abundantly on vigorous, disease-resistant plants, giving you a huge crop of the finest burpless cucumber we have tasted in a long time! No wonder it was a 2002 All America Selection!
These 6- to 8-inch-long cukes look as good as they taste. Spineless and forest-green, they are plump, well-shaped, and packed with crunchy texture and sweet flavor. Don't even think about peeling the semi-glossy skin -- it's thin, tasty, and full of nutrition!
Diva is parthenocarpic -- it needs no pollinator to flower and fruit -- and is renowned for its big yields. We recommend harvesting the fruit before it reaches maximum size -- the smaller cukes are especially succulent!
Despite her name, Diva is no temperamental star but a rough-and-ready garden performer, tolerant of Scab, Powdery Mildew, Downy Mildew, and Angular Leaf Spot. The vining plant reaches 5 to 6 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide, with very prolific fruit over a good season.
Burpless cucumbers are known for their tasty, non-astringent flesh, small seed cavity, and crisp, thin skin that never needs peeling. They are premium cukes for eating fresh.
