need help picking out heirloom Cucumber and Carrot
I was hoping you guys could help me pick out a good heirloom Cucumber and Carrot. I have just started to get into heirlooms, so any expert recommendations would be wonderful!
As far as a Cucumber goes I am looking for one that is:
Prolific producer- I want lots of cucumbers!
Not too bitter by nature (though I think I read that the amount of moisture provided has something to do with bitterness...)
Thin skins that don't need to be peeled (not mandatory, though certainly welcome)
Good slicer and can also be pickled
Last year I tried Carrot 'Chantenay' and was not impressed. The flavor wasn't to my liking, a bit too earthy. I want a Carrot that is very SWEET. And crunchy.
Thank you so much for any ideas!
