Aged 90, aunt Alice (Marie-Alice Laflamme Gosselin) still grew her now famous cucumber. She chose the biggest and nicest ones, collected the seeds, let them soak in milk on Saint-Antoine's eve, and planted them in her garden in some rich and fertile soil. After Alice's death in 2005, the last seeds were given to a dedicated man who helped us discover this variety.
