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:

These were the first veggies from the garden this year. For pickling, we planted these and the Chicago variety. The Chicago variety was a store-bought packet I got for 10 cents. The Boston wer in the backyard with a 6 foot fence just on the West of them, and the house creating some shade to the South. The Chicago were out in an open lot where they got full on sun from start to finish. The Boston that got the afternoon shade exploded and just wouldn't quit until the sun rose further North, giving them full on sun like the ones in the lot. The Chicago in the full sun and heat had the same issues others have experienced with this variety, which was them only getting a handful of yellow balls. I watered both frequently, but the Boston vines retained a lot more moisture with the late day shade, creating even growth with lots of flowers. If I would let them go just about two days too long, they would get as big around as my coffee cup, and about 12 inches long. Had to pick 'em fast.

Review:

Just 5 plants produced over 50 pints of pickles and more than enough for us to eat in salads and as snacks. When I pulled them up they were still going! Will plant every year... love them.

What are the cons? did not do well

Review:

These cucumbers did not do well for us. The plants didn't get very big before dying. We only had 2 plants make it and they didn't get very tall. They only produced 2 cucumbers. The two we got were yellow balls. They started out as green balls then ripened to yellow.

Review:

My first year heirloom gardening. Learning a lot. Planted this from seed in February since we are brutally hot here. August in one day it produced a very very large yellow cucumber. Then the plant died that week. had to pick it yellow - plant is dead. I prepared the soil with old horse manure before planting, plant grew wild everywhere, had to steak it etc with LOTS of flowers. Just no fruit. Maybe the zone 9a extreme heat was too much for it. Might try later this fall for us. Doing raised bed gardening. Learning a lot.
