White Wonder

60 days — The fruits of 'White Wonder' are normally harvested at five to six inches long when their skin is a nice, white color. Although light colored or "white" cucumbers are now very uncommon in the North American marketplace, they were once quite popular as a slicing and pickling variety.

'White Wonder' is very old cucumber that has been listed over the years under several synonyms. These include, 'Albino', 'Ivory King', 'Jack Frost', 'Landreth's White Slicing', and 'White Albino'.[1]

However, the origination of this variety was the W. Atlee Burpee Seed Company. They explained that their source was sent to them "... in the spring of 1890 ... from a customer in Western New York." The customer included a note saying, "The cucumbers are white from the time they begin to grow, and are the best I have ever seen, either for eating fresh or pickling."[3] and they subsequently introduced it for the 1893 gardening season.[1,2,3]

 Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.

Quanity is good ... they produced very nicely.
I grew these and they produced very nicely. The skin was very tough. I tried a Swedish recipe I found on line. I only tried to can garlic dill with this variety. After many tries ( I'm new at dills) I finally was happy after pealing prior to putting in jar. Definitely need to can when you pick otherwise they are mushy. I will grow them again.
