What are the pros? Lovely shape, hold their crisp

What are the cons? none

Review:

I've tried several pickling cukes & these are my absolute favorite. I grew them on a trellis & picked them small. They yielded well right up until frost, probably a gallon a week, and ferment & can beautifully. The plants are large, so I'd recommend using a good sturdy trellis. What I really like is the shape, and that they don't get seedy as quickly as the "fatter" cukes. I should add that while many folks lost their cucumbers to blight last year these never blighted.

Review:

We have trialed about 20 or more heirloom cucumber varieties for mini whole dill pickles and these are the number one winner for best pickles! The flavor and the texture are perfect, mind blowing in fact, when picked at a few days old. Parisian Pickles has that deep fresh heirloom flavor you want from the older varieties. Grew well on the sides of a large mound of dirt.. thanks to Baker Creek for Parisian Pickling cucumbers.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Mildew, turned bitter

Review:

Near Cleveland, OH, 2 blocks from Lake Erie, using sfg. We grew these last year. *Very* prolific; I picked them very small and got at least 1 qt (packed!) of refrigerator pickles per plant, and that's not including all the raw ones we ate or the *many* cucumbers we shared with friends & family. Towards the end of the summer, I was harvesting twice a day to pick them when they were just 1" long because I was running out of room in my fridge! However, once the heat came, the cucumbers turned bitter. :-( My husband didn't really notice the bitter ones, but apparently I'm really sensitive to bitter cucumbers so I'll be looking for a different variety this year. Also, lots of powdery mildew.

What are the pros? Size and taste

What are the cons? Spines

Review:

I tired these on a lark because I have never been able to grow a decent cucumber here (from Maine). These actually grew, produced well and tasted so good. They do need to be checked daily and they do need to be watered consistently. Mine were in raised beds. They lasted till the mildew got them. I'm growing again this year.

Review:

If you love those tiny sour gherkin pickles, then these are the cucumbers you want to grow. These are not great for fresh eating, but perfect for pickling! I planted several just for that purpose, and the vines were so prolific my trellises simply weren't tall enough. At least a 6 foot trellis is needed, and space them well or the cucumbers are hard to spot and will grow too large. The vines were slow to start but summer heat made them take off. These are not for the casual gardener, I had to harvest every evening (in the mornings the blossoms were covered in bees, best to wait) the ones that were the perfect size, about 1.5-2 inches long, medium green, then wash off all the prickers and salt them before pickling them. Cornichons are pickled in pure white vinegar so it's easy to just add to the jars every day til full. I just took the vines down since I canned as much as I wanted but they were still producing. Beware of whitefly though, my vines got it bad near the end.
