Solly Beiler Cucumber

This cucumber makes superior pickles when harvested at about the size of your thumb. Spectacularly productive in our trials, the plants yield very uniform fruits, which at full maturity are russeted like a Poona Kheera. Stays crisp and mild even at larger sizes. Developed in the 1930’s by Solomon “Solly” Beiler, then a bishop in the Beachy Amish Mennonite Church, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Our original seed was furnished by Martin J. Hughes, a present day member of the same church in Elmira, New York.

What are the pros? size of fruit

What are the cons? sensitive to temp, yellows

Review:

Sad to report these are not my favorite pickling cucumbers to grow, at least not in this climate. Planted in a greenhouse in March, when planted out they were quite weakened by the soil still being a bit cool and had a hard time establishing until it warmed up. We have a very short spring here and only a few weeks of nice 60-80? weather so during that time the vines were growing steadily and starting to produce a few small, green, perfect pickling cucumbers... but as soon as the temp exceeded 80 the fruits began turning yellow and the vines have continued to produce only a few yellow fruits steadily. I think in a milder climate these would do great, and I'll stick to another variety that seems happier here.

I am excited that you have these back in stock, as I grew up in Elmira, NY where this seed came from. Will be growing them for the first time, down in NC where we live now. Can't wait to make some pickles!!

Review:

This was the first time I grew actual pickling cukes, and I didn't realize you needed to get them while they were so small! I've been getting tons of compliments on the pickles I made with these last year.
