In this note we study the geometry of the largest component C1of critical percolation on a finite graph G which satisfies the finite triangle condition, defined by Borgs et al. (Random Struct. Algorithms 27:137-184, 2005). There it is shown that this component is of size n2/3, and here we show that its diameter is n1/3 and that the simple random walk takes n steps to mix on it. By Borgs et al. (Ann. Probab. 33:1886-1944, 2005), our results apply to critical percolation on several high-dimensional finite graphs such as the finite torus ℤdn(with d large and n→∞) and the Hamming cube {0,1}n.
