Even though we devoted most of the Organic Gardening Test Garden to familiar older varieties and heirlooms in 2011, we couldn’t resist including a few new introductions. Our hope is always to discover something wonderfully distinctive and delicious among the new catalog offerings. These were our favorites.
‘Salt and Pepper’ Cucumber
This amazingly prolific pickling cucumber doubles as a tasty salad cuke. The white-skinned, 4-inch fruits are “a good size if you don’t want a lot of cuke at once,” one of our test gardeners says.
