In the video, Trevor Voorberg talks about his experiences with this cucumber variety. “Currently, Verdon is our main summer variety,” he says. “Verdon really stands up, and it just has more resilience than other varieties that we have tested before. I appreciate the green mottle resistance; it is exactly what you need in the heat of the summer.”
