Are Persian Cucumbers for real or a gimmick?
My wife is fond of the 4" long Persian Cucumbers sold in the supermarket, and wants to grow some in the garden this season. I can't seem to find definitive information about whether these "Persian Cucumbers" as marketed in stores are an actual Persian cucumber or just baby burpless cukes. Frankly, they look like burpless cucumbers picked early to me. Anyone have any insight? If they are an actual type of cucumber, a seed source would be much appreciated.
