Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The "Boston Pickling Cucumber" has been around since the 19th century, and is still one of the big favorites. The cucumbers are flavorful and consistent in size, so they're never limited to pickle-making. They're stars of the salads, too.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow seed in late spring when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. For earlier crop start indoors 4-6 weeks before setting out. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Keep soil moist, and feed monthly. Tie vines on trellis to save space.
Harvesting: Pick when fruits are 4-5"/10-13 cm. long, white the texture is still firm and the seeds small. Harvest earlier for “baby” pickles. Pick every 2-4 days to encourage more fruit to form.

Comments about American Meadows Boston Pickling Cucumber Seeds:

This a one of the best pickling cukes I have ever used. Very reliable in yeild, size & quality. Put up about 60 to 80 quarts a season of pickles and just know that the Boston Pickler is going to get the job done. Kirk
