Anyone grow County Fair cucumbers?

If it weren't for this variety, I would never be able to have cucumbers. I'm so grateful for it! But every year, the cucumbers seem to be different. Some years they are short and fat..........this year they are skinny and long.
Have any of you who grow this variety routinely find that their shape changes every year?

Is it a pickler or slicer? Googling now and interested since it's resistant to wilt

It's a pickler, but I always use it as a slicer. I'm surprised more people don't use it.............Never, ever a problem with cucumber beetles and wilt. Like I said, I just couldn't grow cucumbers, if it weren't for this variety.
