Homemade Pickles Cucumber is a very vigorous vining plant that produces a large abundance of solid, crisp, and flavorful cucumbers. The firm crunchy cucumbers grow 6" long and the plant is resistant to common cucumber diseases. These are great for making our Spicy Refrigerator Pickles Recipe!  Cucumbers are versatile and are usually pickled or eaten raw as a main ingredient in salads. 

Cucumber seeds can be planted directly into the garden soil.

Sow seeds 2-3 weeks after the last frost date. 

Make mounds of rich soil 2' apart and plant 2 seeds on top 1/2" deep. Later thin to 1 plant per mound. Keep well watered and fertilized throughout the growing season. Mulching can be useful in conserving moisture and minimizing the presence of weeds.

Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis in full sun. Vines can grow up to 5' long. 

Harvest your cucumbers depending on their use, and therefore their size. They can over-mature and become bitter quickly. Check your crop frequently and pick them at their peak quality by gently cutting them from the vine.

Each packet contains 50 Homemade Pickles Cucumber seeds. Cucumis sativa. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, Non-GMO. Harvest in 55 days. $3.00 

This packet plants 25 mounds for 25 plants.

Cucumber sprouts, stems, leaves, and fruit are edible.

Cucumbers are eaten fresh on salads and in sandwiches and so much more. They can also be baked, roasted, and stir-fried. Preserving cucumbers is commonly done by pickling them with brine and canning in glass jars. Other ways to store cucumbers is by fermenting or dehydrating them.

Features.

Homemade Pickles Cucumber was developed to be one of the best varieties for making pickles. Most pickling cucumbers are shorter than slicing cucumbers and their flesh and skin are thicker and crispier. Expect high yields of cucumbers that can be harvested at 1" long for tiny sweet pickles, 3" long for dills, or 6" long for spears. At whatever size, they are firm and tender-sweet. This cucumber has a wonderful sweet flavor when eaten fresh, and can be grown for that reason alone. 

Benefits.

Cucumbers are crisp and refreshing, due to their high percentage of water. Along with a 95% water content, cucumbers have potassium, beta carotene, and vitamin K, They contain several phytochemicals with promising therapeutic benefits, and have successfully been used in Indian Ayurveda medicine for more than 3,000 years ago.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting cucumbers can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.

I can now make pickles!

My Mom showed me how to can pickles and now I can't get enough of them. Easy to grow, easy to can, and so crunchy and tasty. I like adding your early jalapenos to the jars to give them a little spice. These were also great fresh on salads or just snacking on right in the garden. :)

Great for making spicy pickles

I grow several of your hot peppers like jalapenos, serranos, ajis and cayennes and grow these cucumbers to make spicy pickles with them! I love your jalapeno pickles recipe, simple and easy to make – and everyone we share them with loves them! I use a horshradish leaf in each jar to help with crispness, thanks for the recommendation.

One note I have about cucumber seeds (at least for me here in Colorado), is that it's best to start them directly in the garden. I find that they don't transplant that well. I HAVE had problems with cutworms (I think) eating my cucumber sprouts early in the season, so I keep planting more seeds until a few take. I have also started seeds in pots, but right after they sprout and get their first leaf I like to transplant them quickly into the garden, as they do get root bound fast and then they don't do well when transplanting.

Once they get going, watch out! It's easy to miss cukes hiding in the foilage, and they grow into monsters. I still pickle them all though, big or small.
