Boston Pickling Cucumber
Heirloom. A favorite of gardeners for high yields of short cukes with solid flesh. Cucumbers are thin-skinned, straight with full ends, and a nice green color. Vines bear continuously. Flesh is crisp and very receptive to pickling spices. Great for any pickling recipe, whether sweets or dills. May be harvested at sizes from 3 to 7 inches, depending on your pickling needs. To maximize space, place plants 1 foot apart and train them up a trellis.
Plants resist scab and are tolerant to cucumber mosaic.
