I’m looking for a non hybrid “English” type. Burpless. Any Suggestions?

Do those make good sliced pickles? I’m down to a few jars of my mostest favoritest pickles in the whole world. Getting jittery that I might run out! They put the crowning touch on hamburgers, hot dogs and deviled eggs. Or just eat them out of the jar, then drink the syrup. I MUST grow cucumbers next year!

Could Someone explain something to me?

It was my understanding that the English cucumber was developed for greenhouse culture. Therefore, it benefits/requires moderate and consistent growing conditions.

The UK has had greenhouses for more than a century. Shucks, I worked in a range of greenhouses where 2 of the smaller ones were built in the 1920's.
