BOSTON PICKLING CUCUMBER (heirloom) (52 days)

3

Germ 6-10 days
Heirloom pre-1880
Per D. M. Ferry in 1930, “This is a very productive variety that is extensively grown for pickles. The vines are vigorous. The fruits are bright green, of medium size, very smooth and symmetrical. The flesh is crisp and tender”. 25 seeds

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees

Harvest- Pick daily to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost. Mulch and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation and takes less space than hills and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce.

Amazing Cucumbers

They have grown well and I have a lot set on ready to get bigger. They taste wonderful and I hope to get enough to make pickles.

Cucumbers

All seeds came up & look good. Putting on 3rd leaves. Have cattle panels for plants to grow up on.

It's a Solid Cucumber

Great for slicing and pickling. It makes nice spears and chips. Found it to be a moderate producer but we still like it. Had a slightly sweet taste. We are purchasing it again.
