Heirloom 1842. According to the 1936 James Vicks Seeds catalog: “Of the black spine type, growing 12-13” long and 3” in diameter. Very popular for slicing and salting when mature, and when small, much esteemed for pickling.
Germination: 4-10 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep
Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before 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 last frost.
Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when 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 allows 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.

The experience was great and in no time I found the seeds My mother needed and that her 91 year old self will plant next spring. Her words.
The wife and I planted cucumbers this year and they have never looked this good from years pass .. all the seeds we bought have all been great
