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 be able to offer it! The thin skins take up pickling solutions readily. Black-spined fruits can be allowed to reach 7” without sacrificing quality, but are often harvested much smaller. Amazingly prolific, and disease-resistant, too.

Review:

I've been growing these for several years now out here in the hot desert southwest. I plant at the end of Jan-beginning of Feb. They begin producing around the middle of April. This last season (2016) I canned over two hundred jars of pickles from a patch about 400-500 square feet. Plus a lot of fresh eating. These are very consistent in growth and production, and I get sooo many compliments from the pickles!

What are the pros? plant and forget

What are the cons? unless bugs :(

Review:

Planted 6 of these in near full sun. They shot up after they were a foot tall they started flowering. Each plant had one growing and one ripening at any time for me; harvesting enough cukes for a jar of fridge pickles every week. I cannot exaggerate how good these pickles were. My favourite plant this year. Sadly they seemed to be everything's favourtie too. Birds would occasionally eat the flowers right off the plant and About early July Thrips devastated a few of my different plants. Cukes were hit the hardest. they responded well to insecticidal soap and began to grow back from the nodes before an early snow up here. Def a trooper of a plant and still awesome despite the fact that birds and bugs also like the small flowers. Never had them peck at a ripe fruit though. They trellis incredibly easily with their tendrils, Recommend growing that way.

Review:

These cucumbers have been growing in my organic backyard raised bed garden in Chicago for three years now. They are, surprise, great for making pickles! Super high germination rate. Flawless growth with long vines that travel up a trellis nicely. I grow them along a fence and sunflower stalks. These plants yield a lot and are resistant to disease. I get some powder mildew on them late in the season but haven't had any other problems. The cucumbers they produce are crisp and flavorful and have small seeds. They should be harvested while small, 4-6". If you wait too long they will start to get plump and their color will begin to turn yellow- I've still pickled them successfully without much flavor difference. Out of three years growing, this year is my lowest production, and I still have plenty of cucumbers to make pickles. The plants this year are doing great, they just waited a little longer to get going for some reason. This is a super rewarding plant that I highly recommend
