Parisian Pickle Cucumber (Heirloom, 50 Days)

French Heirloom – 1880. An improved bourbonne type, this cucumber was used extensively in the commercial production of both cornichons and gherkins in the late 19th century. Fruits are longer and thinner than pickling cucumbers in this country but amply covered with little bumps (spines). Can grow up to 6” with a slight curve on lengthy vines. Also a fine slicer.

 20 seeds


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 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.

Parisian Pickle Cucumbers

I am very pleased with the service and seed that I receive. Pinetree is my go to seed company before anyone else. I like the Parisian Pickle cucumber and will grow it more. It keeps a more narrow length as it grows rather than getting too wide too fast as my bush cucumbers do. Especially, if I am not around to stay on top of harvesting daily.

Seeds great so far

I started these seeds in mid-January and they all germinated. They're almost big enough to transplant into the garden. Looking forward to tasting them soon.
