Chicago Pickling Cucumber

55 days. Originally bred for the markets of the Chicago area. Released in 1888, this has been the go-to pickling cuke for generations of home gardeners and canners, and we are so pleased to offer it! The thin skins take up pickling solutions readily. Black-spined fruit can be allowed to reach 7” without sacrificing quality, but is often harvested much smaller. Amazingly prolific, and disease resistant, too.

What are the pros? Excellent pickling cucumber

What are the cons? none

Review:

These cucumbers make an excellent pickle, perfect size and shape for our family favorite dill pickles. We grew them on a cattle panel trellis for easier picking. The harvest was plentiful and lasted all summer. We had no disease or insect problems this year. Highly recommended.

What are the pros? Prolific, high-yielding

What are the cons? Pests like seeds

Review:

Sowed 15 seeds under a 12x5 trellis in late April. All were dug up and eaten by pests. Replanted in late May, all but two seeds were eaten. From these two seeds sprouted two cucumber plants in a corner of the bed, which in a month and a half have completely taken over the trellis and produce 1-2 dozen cucumbers a week. Just two plants are providing more than enough for my household, and the vigorous vines are still expanding. This variety makes the tastiest, crunchiest dill pickles I’ve ever tasted in my life, especially when pickled whole. Amazing cucumber flavor when eaten fresh, too. Will definitely grow again, but might start seeds indoors or under some pest protection.

Review:

These little cukes are so easy to grow! I expanded my container gardening this year to include these little beauties and San Marzano mini tomatoes. I successfully grow herbs in various pots at the front entrance to my townhouse. I have 5 or 6 Chicago Cucumber plants in a very large rubber bucket which I poked many holes in for drainage. I started the seeds indoors and then transplanted them to the bucket. I built a trellis for them with an inverted tomato cage (ziptied to bucket at soil level) and twine. I like the gardening Velcro so I can easily move it to keep training the vines. These cukes have grown so fast! They are fun to watch as they mature. So far, only one leaf hole so I am happy about the lack of insects. I have two cukes ready for salads in a day or two and I am so excited! My family eats a lot of fresh cucumbers and having fresh ones at home is a wonderful treat.
