Homemade Pickles Cucumber (54 Days)

8 reviews

The ideal size and shape of these cukes as well as the crisp texture and good flavor make it the quintessential pickler. Whether picked small for tiny gherkins, medium size for dill spears, or large for bread & butter slices, these short, plump cukes are perfect. The 2-3’ vines are vigorous and prolific, ensuring that you’ll have plentiful homemade pickles. Resistance to angular leaf spot, cucumber mosaic virus, downy and powdery mildew.

PLANTING

Cucumis sativus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after the last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and pick every day to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allow for good air circulation, takes up less space, and provides shade for heat-sensitive crops like lettuce. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

Fantastic cucumber success

I am 63 and have NEVER had the kind of success with cukes as I did this year! I gave my sister 18 lbs of cukes yesterday and I am going to make relish and bread and butter pickles with about the same amount today. And they’re still blooming and bearing! Thanks so much!

Homemade Pickles

I love Pinetree Garden Catalog!! My pickle vine is growing well and covered with blossoms even though we haven’t had much rain since beginning of June. I’ve started harvesting and need to pick twice a day to get small pickles for Sweet Candied Dills. Also doing bread and butter. Great product!

Bread and Butter Pickles

This variety of pickling cukes are prolific and fight off diseases very well. They work great for jarring up my world famous bread and butter pickles.
