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.

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.

Review:

I usually don't write reviews but I am ago happy with cucumbers I needed to share. As a first year gardener they came out amazing. Out of 10 seeds sown, 2 grew into huge mass producing plants. I've been pulling off about 3 cucumbers every two to three days and the are absolutely the best tasting cucumbers I have ever had. Very pleased.

What are the pros? great pickles!

What are the cons? I forgot to order more in 2014

Review:

Grew and trained well, easy to pick, prolific, no issues whatsoever. I used these to make Alton Brown's "Kinda Sort Sours" and every other pickle has paled in comparison since. I can't wait to make more this year!

What are the cons? Almost too bountiful

Review:

I'll be honest, I've never liked cucumbers. I grew these with the intention of pickling them and the Marketmore 76 for other household members to eat. They were grown in the same plot not even three yards away and were watered regularly. These won hands down over the Marketmores. Much higher yields, faster growing and more flavorful. I even liked these ones fresh! Made wonderful pickles and they were so plentiful that we were giving them away to neighbors, co-workers and sold some to a small local farm store supplying the community with local produce. The size is perfect for eating at one sitting so you don't have half a cucumber left over. When I pulled the vines at the end of the season to toss in the chicken run for composting I left the last cucumbers on for the hens. They loved them just as much as we did. Ordered more this year and skipped the Marketmores. Will be saving our seeds from this year's harvest. Definitely a winner.

Review:

3 years ago I purchased a packet of each Boston and National picklers, and planted them in separate 6-packs, labeling each one appropriately. Over the next 4 weeks, the "sharpie" ink came off the plastic markers, so I had no idea which was which any more. Planted them in our raised bed garden, one pack per side. Well…. they took off like someone was chasing them. That year we had such a bumper crop that I made some bread-and-butter pickles, and the family went wild! Next year I planted them both again, this time making sure labels survived the watering. We set them one per side as the previous year, and watched them go at it again. That year Boston was first to the top, and the vine made it over the beams and to the other side-HAD to be close to 10-ft long. Pickles were hanging off the archway by the dozens. I got a 3-gallon crock and had 5 12-pound batches, not counting what we gave away and consumed. Good mildew resistance too!
