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.

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.

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!

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

What are the cons? none

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.
