Thanks to greenhouses, we can enjoy Gilkerson's cucumbers from May-October in South Dakota!
I’ve tasted many different varieties of cucumbers from different sources and have experienced cucumbers that were bitter, mealy, seedy, dry, or became slimy only days after buying. But I have yet to be disappointed by a Gilkerson cucumber- they are always crisp, juicy, store well, and are pleasantly flavored!
Storage: Cucumbers will keep for up to 2 weeks if wrapped in a paper towel and kept in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. The paper towel absorbs condensation in the bag and keeps them perfectly crisp.
