Tiny pickling cucumbers are ready in about 50 days. This old French heirloom is used to make the 2” long Cornichon pickles that are so tasty. Still popular in France for this purpose. High yielding vines will be popular with all those who preserve food.

What are the pros? bountiful, attractive

What are the cons? flavor

Review:

Our plants germinated well, were healthy and produced heavily. However, we have a really hot climate here, and I believe it was the reason that the cukes were so, so bitter. So far, less than 10% have been edible, but they are plentiful. I'm hoping that when our weather cools down that we'll have some to pickle, because the few that were good were really good - crisp, firm, and tasty.

Review:

We are having a very wet and cooler summer than in seasons past. I think this is key in the success I am having with my plants. I had nearly 100% germination when I did them in pots. The transfer to the ground also went well and I used the compost pots. The plants have really gone crazy and I have so many blossoms! We like the cucumbers raw and especially with our favorite pickle recipe. http://foodinjars.com/2009/08/garlic-dill-pickles/ We eat them as fridge pickles and canned. I cut them in circles and spears.

Review:

These were pretty good cukes, and we got quite a few out of them. They were hard to pick young, but even the large ones stayed firm and pickled well. Unfortunately, mid-July, the fines suddenly died for no obvious reason. They must have picked up a disease or pest or something. Otherwise, they grew quickly and were good.

Review:

Cukes have a mild flavour, crisp flesh. The skin is tough on the older cucumbers. I grew them for pickling, but also enjoyed some of the "almost full sized" ones. I found them to be a little tricky to harvest: they stayed tiny for a while before flowering, then they went from teeny to oversized in no time. They were also not very uniform. Even at the girkin stage, some were 3 inches long, and once they reached pickle-size, some were too long for a quart jar! The pickles are crisp and tasty.

Review:

I thought this was a perfect growing year for these but the fruit was tasteless both fresh and as a pickle. Pulled the plants out and will grow a different variety next year.
