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 pickling cucumbers were very easy to grow. We are in Zone 3 so we started the seeds early indoors-too early actually with not enough light so they became very leggy- but I planted more and they grew fast! Size of cucumbers was good and the quantity was great too. Canned a lot of pickles and they came out great! Buying more seeds this year and planting more than last!

Review:

We - like most of the rest of the US - had a funky spring and summer. We had late frosts until May, and I had already planted my cucumbers in zone 7B in the middle of April. I covered the cucumbers up at night, and they survived. I planted 3 plants, and had enough cucumbers to keep my family in pickles until next year, easily. We ate just as many fresh as I canned. They're delicious and extremely productive. These will definitely be going in my garden next year.

What are the pros? Produced a lot of cucumbers

What are the cons? Didn’t last too long

Review:

We had an usually hot spring and summer this year. The vines were prolific with large leaves and tons of flowers and did very well until the end of July. I didn’t have any pest or disease issues at all. I will definitely grow this again because I was able to make tons of pickles with these. I haven’t tasted the pickles yet but the fresh cucumbers were good with some ranch dressing! I usually put 2-3 seeds per pot when starting but I will tell you ONE plant is plenty big enough and will cover a large area.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Prone to disease, low produce

Review:

I wanted to try this traditional piclikng variety, but it dissapointed me a bit. It was prone to diseases, not great production, and has heat intolerance. Conclusion, it is not for growing in regions with hot and dry summers.

Review:

Planted 10 of these seeds in my zone 5B garden and they are growing like crazy. Getting at least 6-10 per day right now in the first part of August. Have already made 6 quarts of pickles and have enjoyed them in some salads as well. I have them on a 6 x 15 foot trellis and they have covered that and are spreading onto the ground. I’ve had to give several of them away because they just produce so well. What I can’t use or get rid of, the chickens get so they’ve had plenty as well. I couldn’t be happier. It seems like once you start picking them, they produce even more. Can’t go wrong with these, give em’ a try!!
