CUCUMBER – BOSTON PICKLING

Cucumis sativus

The Boston Pickling Cucumber is an old American favorite originally introduced in 1880.  This old & very reliable Cucumber is a very high yielder that bears lovely cucumbers continuously, provided the cucumbers are harvested continually & are not allowed to over-mature & become yellow. Productive vines produce large quantities of little blocky, green cucumbers that are just the right size for use as pickles & should be harvested when the cucumbers are 5 – 15cm long. Resistant to Mosaic Virus & Cucumber Scale. Matures in 50 to 55 days.

Sow seeds direct into well-prepared beds with added compost. Soil must be 20 degrees or above for best germination results. Press 4 seeds into a hole and then later to 2 seedlings. Space plants about 90cm apart. Can be grown on a small trellis.
