Description
Langeland's Giant
70 days — A good variety for both pickling (if you like large pickles) as well as for slicing.  Originally from Denmark and named after the Danish island of Langeland where it is called "Langelands Kmpe," or in English, Langeland's Giant.

The vines bear fruit that are dark green with white flesh and small seed cores that average about twelve inches long by four inches in diameter. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.

Does well in cool climate
I live where the summers are very cool, and most vegetables struggle to produce in the expected amounts. I have learned that any variety with the word "Giant" in its name is a good thing to try. Last year I planted this cucumber for the first time, and the results were very good. The vines were very vigorous and sturdy, and the fruits were reasonably numerous, with good shape and size, similar to what the product information states. In the previous year, using a different, more mainstream, variety, I had big problems with bitterness. The first crop of Langeland's Giant did not show this issue significantly, with only a few fruits showing a little bitterness right where the vine attached. Overall the flavor was very good. I will be growing this variety again this year

Langeland's Giant Cucumbers
I planted 3 hills of Langeland's Giant Cucumbers in our 2012 garden to try them along with my regular pickling cukes. They did very well and although they started producing a couple of weeks later once started produced a very respectable crop of GIANT (as advertised) cucumbers. They are advertised as good for pickling but I was not impressed with the pickles we made with them. We made both fermented and regular pickles and in both cases they turned out somewhat soft while the regular (Miss Pickler) cucumbers were crunchy as usual. They are awsome in salads and may be just the thing for sweet pickles. Stan Marohn, Blue Willow Farm llc
