Salt and Pepper cucumbers are small, squat, and cylindrical, roughly 7-12 centimeters long and have a crisp texture and a mild, pleasant flavor.

These cucumbers were carefully chosen due to the combination of disease resistance and a quality flavor. The appearance of the immature cucumber with its white skin and black spines was the inspiration for the name "Salt and Pepper."  They get darker the longer you leave them on the vine.
