Outstanding. Produced so many cucumbers that I could barely keep up. My refrigerator is packed full of pickles! Vigorous, healthy plants. Will grow again.

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.

Will grow this forever!

We grew this variety in our Fall garden and they quickly became my favorite cucumber variety that I have ever grown. They are extremely prolific, disease & bug resistant and I was able to successfully grow them organically with NO intervention! They have provided us with gallons and gallons of pickles and are still covered in flowers and little cucs as we approach frost. We will keep this in our seed collection from now on!

Loved these!

These pickles were a family favorite this year! We ate them fresh and used them to make pickles. They were great fresh off the vine, very crunchy. When we pickled them, thay did great maintaining that pickle crunch you want! Will definitely be planting these again next summer!

skins a bit thick

3 out of 5 stars Dec 3, 2021
These seeds germinated and grew pretty well for me, even in a suboptimal location without full sun. Fairly good yields, but the cakes had fairly tough and thick skins, which I wasn't a big fan of. (Perhaps that means I harvested them too late.)
Casey from PA
Owner Response: Hi Casey, Thicker skins is a characteristic of pickling cucumbers but the skins also get tougher as fruit mature. I would try harvesting them a bit earlier.

We loved Them.

Despite a slow start - my fault - it was my first time growing them, when they started to produce... oh boy, oh boy! They were FANTASTIC! Very prolific plants, very juicy and tender and tasty cucs. We were grabbing them from the plant, bringing in the house to prepare them... but most of the time, from the plant to the kitchen the number of them were decreasing ?!?!?? Somehow we were 'losing' some cucs during the transportation... :) Ah!!!! WE COULDN'T WAIT TO EAT THEM. Thank yo very much. We will definitely repeat this year.

Pickling Cucumbers

Love smaller pickling cucumbers. I had a large yield of these cucumbers, grown in a canvas planting bag and made into delicious kosher dill refrigerator pickles.

Considering this was my first time gardening I think these cucumbers worked out well. I made homemade pickles with them and they are very good. This year I'm going to try a different spot in the garden to plant my seeds to see if I get more cucumbers. They may not have had enough sun last summer. The seeds sprouted very well and climbed my trellis as I wanted. So I'm anxious to try them again in a new spot.

Amazing yield

5 out of 5 stars Apr 9, 2022
I bought some of these seeds years ago while I was in Canada. Though the package had expired I decided to through them in and see what happened. They were the perfect pickle size and yielded so many. I tried a different type last year and it was very successful. This year I am back and won't choose any others.
