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:

List summer i grew these to make pickles and i have to say they grew like weeds! I HAD only 6 vines growing up a plastic construction fence and by late June i was picking two dozen a day! My wife and I made over 100 jars of pickles and the people at the race track i work for could not buy them fast enough. Going to plant thee times what i planned last year. Add a little bday leaf in your pickles and they stay crispy for months. They grew into October however not well. I just let them die but the ones i threw on the ground started growing late in the year.

Review:

Used these fresh and they are tasty, but they really shine in pickles. Lacto-fermented or vinegar brined quick style-- either way, they are fantastic. But I have been crying since the fall when we pickled our last batch because I knew we'd run out at some point. This year we're planting double. We live in San Diego County. Nematodes are a big problem for us, but these did really well despite the little buggers. They are a bit spiny but soooo delicious.

Review:

I got this seed a couple of years ago at the head quarters in Mansfield. they grow great for me here in the Ozarks I always end up having way too many to know what to do with. Two years ago i made pickles with them and my wife said they were the best pickles she has ever had. If you are looking to grow something to boost your morale grow these because they grow so prolifically.
