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.

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.

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year and had very good germination rate and fruit production. I think the abnormal extended heat this year possibly reduced my yeild some but still very good. Excelent flavor and crispness in the pickles I canned. Just ordered more for 2019. As for now I will not use any other cucumber. The best.

Review:

This is our second year growing the Chicago pickle and again, great results! We have a small garden, so we only have one plant on a trellis growing up the garage wall. From this little plant, we've easily made 10 jars of pickles. Maybe more but they get eaten faster than I can count. Highly recommend!

Review:

This is my first year growing the Chicago Pickling Cucumber from Baker Creek. Wow! I can't believe how many cukes I'm getting, how early they matured, how many blossoms are still on the very healthy vines, and how tasty these cukes are for both slicing and pickling. I've already pickled enough for our family for the year and I'm still getting so many cukes that neighbors and friends are reaping the benefit now. This one's a keeper.
