SOOO Many Cucumbers!

I bought two dashers as an experiment, having never grown cuc’s before. They were uneventful and didn’t seem to grow for about 6 weeks, then suddenly over the course of 2 weeks, they outgrew my 7ft trellis, spread to two adjacent 7ft trellises, and yielded its first harvest of 7 giant, delicious cucumbers. The bees are obsessed with this plant and I’m amazed at how productive it is (full sun 9A). Would 100% recommend. I’m never buying from grocery stores again—homegrown is incomparably superior.

Go Dasher!

I love this cucumber plant! Arrived in perfect condition due to Grow Joy's meticulous care! It is now growing happily each day since being planted in the garden less than a week ago.

I love cucumbers and grow them every year. I grow a different burpees plant that I don’t know the specific name of (grow long and thin super crunchy and sweet). This cucumber is crunchy sweet but smaller, don’t let them get too wide. These also grew cucumbers from June till September which is amazing. My favorite may be the palace king tho

Cucumber plants

I have received the little Dasher 11 cucumber plants and they were very healthy plants and I planted them right away. As in my other review for the beets, they will be going through this major hurricane for the next few days and although I feel that I have protected them, I hope they do okay.

Mid Summer Purchase

Here in Iowa we have a rewarding but relatively short growing season. I usually plant my garden the first or second week in May. I love fresh cucumbers and enjoy them until the plants begin dying off by the end of July. This year I decided to try a second crop and couldn't afford the wait period while seeds germinated. Started plants were not available locally this late in the season. I found GrowJoy through an internet search and took the chance of placing an order. I received (3) beautiful plants amazingly fast! I'm now picking and enjoying fresh cucumbers in mid-September. Fingers crossed we have a late first frost!

Cucumber review

Ordered one plant and put it in a box next to some herbs not expecting much. Ended up running it up a 6 foot stake and have been getting a delicious cumber every 2 to 3 days for a month. Everyone says these are excellent cucumbers! Probably going to dedicate that planter box to 2 cumber plants next year and give some away.

From anonymous | August 02, 2021

Doing well

These cukes survived the heat during shipping. We had an unusual heat wave. They didn’t look great when they arrived, but after watering and planting, we are getting cukes.

From Debbie | July 19, 2021


UPS delivery was late , however the box and plant were in good shape.

This plant arrived late at night. We planted it the next day. Then it rained for three days. It is struggling but is still alive.

I received my plants and one was damaged on arrival. I sent a picture and GrowJoy gave me store credit to purchase another plant. I have them planted and they are growing wonderfully. Very healthy plants! I love the service I received. I have already purchased something else from them for my garden.

Crazy For Cucumbers

The Dasher II Cucumber plants came quickly and in good order. I planted them in the ground and they have really taken off. I expect them to do very well...thank you again for a fast, accurate and well done job GrowJoy! I will continue to do business with you because of the trust developed over the years.

From Chad | October 20, 2015

Package was excellent

My plants were packaged in a way no damage could happen during shipment. Very little dryness but that is to expected. There are thriving in my garden as I write.

From Gloria | June 08, 2015


Dasher is by far my favorite kind of Cucumber. It is great for pickling or if you're just making a good salad. It has a nice tarty flavor to it and has grown very well and has produced nicely.

From Michael | May 17, 2015
