These cucumbers are definitely a prolific producer! 100% germination direct sowing. Crisp, kept well in fridge and pickled beautifully! Bees were in love with all the flowers too!

The Only Pickling Cucumber to Grow

5 out of 5 stars Jan 7, 2021
In the past I always used the Boston Pickling cuke then one year I tried this one. This pickling cucumber is epic! I am in Southern Ohio, zone 6 and these are true to their description. My plants are literally not affected by disease and produce in to the cold spells of the season. The quality of the cucumbers are superior and make excellent pickles, relish, chow, etc. Try them- you will be happy!

Best pickling cucumber by far

5 out of 5 stars Jul 16, 2021
I've grown and purchased many types of pickling cucumbers, but these are the best by a long shot. They stay super crisp when pickled and only have tough skins if you let them grow way too long. The plants produce a ton of fruit, and they are actually quite pleasing to the eye with streaks of creamy yellow. I buy these seeds year after year, and I haven't found any other cucumber that rivals them.
