These are the Diva variety from Johnny's Seeds -- a greenhouse cuke -- and mentioned in Janisse Ray's book on seed saving. I've been cutting off the skins to give to Beau Toby who really loves them with carrots and softened alfalfa cubes. The magazine Holistic Horse has an article on whole foods in season, so in moderation, we're putting some goodies in the mix.
