55 days. Originally bred for the markets of the
Chicago area. Released in 1888, this has been the go to
pickling cuke for generations of home gardeners
and canners, and we are so pleased to be able to offer
it! The thin skins take up pickling solutions readily.
Black-spined fruits can be allowed to reach 7” without
sacrificing quality, but are often harvested much
smaller. Amazingly prolific, and disease-resistant, too.
