Boston Pickling Cucumber

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.

We've tried quite a few varieties over the years but these are our favorite. Small, thick skinned, crisp, perfect for canning pickles.

Nice flavour but sensitive
Easy to Grow 3.0

What are the pros? High yield, good flavour

What are the cons? Needs constant watering

Review:

Very prolific with good flavour. Does well up here in the north. I have, however, had trouble with bitter cukes. I don't have time to water my plants every day, which this variety seems to need to produce non-bitter fruit. This was my only cucumber variety with this problem. (All the other varieties were heirlooms as well, no hybrids!) I would absoutely recommend this, but ONLY if you have time to water every day or have a watering system.

Sweet and prolific
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Flavor, production, pickling

What are the cons? None!

Review:

These little cukes are super sweet, very prolific, and great for eating straight from the vine, pickling, or in a salad! There is no bitterness at all, even when you pick them small. They have very tight, small seeds perfect for pickles, but if you wait too long, they do get very fat and a bit more seedy (they usually max out around 8 inches long and just go lateral from there).

Got a melon
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? If you plant it they grow

What are the cons? Get heavy trellis

Review:

My first garden and I planted a whole pack, and every bloody one I put in the ground came up. I am up to my eyeballs in cucumbers, and don't let anyone tell you they do not make good slicing cucumbers just peal them. I also had read that sunflowers can be used as a sort of trellis.Well not for these bad boys they are just too many growing. However, I have a melon plant grow in the mix here! I have no idea I did not plant any melons and I thought it was a cucumber when it was growing until I see this BIG melon when I pushed back the leaves the other day. So Baker Seed you had a stray melon in my pack! But that's okay hope it tastes good :)

What are the pros? Easy to grow, lots of of fruit

What are the cons? May be prone to mildew

Review:

I got 20 pounds of cucumbers off of 2 plants this year (direct sown from seed). I was getting 5-10 a day at one point! They make an excellent pickling cucumber. Mine were prone to downy mildew (leaves only, it didn't affect the fruit) but we had a very wet year and an overly cool spring, so conditions were tough for plants in general. I'll definitely grow these again.
