An old heirloom dating back to 1880. Vigorous vines give large yields of smooth green fruit. It is excellent for pickles; very crisp and good quality. A very popular variety at the turn of the 20th century.

What are the pros? Easy to start

Review:

I probably won't try these again. I am in SW MO - Zone 6A. The heat has been a little hotter than normal this summer but I haven't gotten one good cucumber. They've all turned yellow and gone bad before I've had a chance to pick. One day I had one too young to pick, looked outside the next morning and it was bright yellow. They just seem to be too sensitive for my zone. Will go back to my old variety next year - Straight Eight.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? Nothing to dislike

Review:

This "Boston" cuke does great in Central Texas! I love this cucumber. It's so prolific! It had us in agua frescas, pickles and salads for months last year. Even the ones that turn yellow and seedy have great flavor. It produced so many cucumbers that I gave bags away. This year, I forgot to order seeds online and planted some locally-available varieties recommended for my area - big mistake. I won't forget to order again!

The Perfect Homestead Pickle
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Decent full vines.

What are the cons? Play peek a boo at harvest.

Review:

This pickle is the one I remember my gran folks growing. Thick full canopy vines, makes for plenty of hours of canning. For our need it is the all round perfect pickle for the homestead. Slices nice for everyday salads when eaten fresh. Crispy pickles months later after sitting on the shelves.

Review:

I grew 8 of these bad boys in a 50 gallon smart pot last spring. I actually had to add rabbit fencing to the trellis) and makeshift an arch over some posts to support these vines! Absolutely beautiful plants. They were the stars of my garden next to the Cherokee Purple Tomatoes. They attracted lots of beneficial insects and a couple hummingbirds! I had so many I had to pickle them! Wonderful in salad. Uneven watering can make them bitter or if left on the vine too long. Best cucumbers I have ever had, hands down. I even sold a couple jars of pickels to friends and co-workers! I am buying more for this spring 2016.
