Many regional varieties of pickling cucumbers have existed since the mid 1800. Boston pickling, developed in 1880, grows in clusters and is still considered one of the best tasting and most disease resistant.


Vigorous vines produce an abundance of uniform, bright green, medium size fruit which are smooth and symmetrical. Fruits measure 5-7” long by 2 ½” diameter.


Plant seed outdoors in late spring when ground is warm and danger of frost is past. Traditionally planted in “hills” (a small circular group of 4-6 seeds) can also be planted in rows. Hills or rows should be 4 to 6 feet apart. Cover seed with ½” of fine soil, well pressed down. Keep moist until seeds sprout. When plants are 2-3” tall thin hills to 3 or 4 strongest plants. Can be planted until mid-July. Matures in 60 days.
