Homemade Pickles Cucumber Seeds

(P) Pkt of 30 seeds
Item #05118-PK-P1


Heavy yields and great disease resistance

Days to Maturity: 55

Especially bred for home pickling, these attractive, extra-tasty cukes will make perfect pickles every time. Boasting solid, crisp flesh and excellent bite, they should be harvested at about 1½ inches for tiny sweet pickles, or let mature to 5 or 6 inches for hefty, robust dills and spears. At whatever size, they are firm and tender-sweet. Plants grow very vigorously over a long season, with great disease resistance for even bigger yields. Support the bountiful vines with a trellis or staking.

Direct sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. 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, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well-watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly.

Everything It Claims and More

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Beautiful performer in my Piedmont region garden of South Carolina even in an unusually rainy year (I've heard we got more rain this year than Washington State!) I planted 4 vines one 7' x 4' raised bed with bamboo teepee supports. The crisp sweet fruit is prolific and healthy, the vines covering the bed (even blanketing lady finger pea plants in a row beside them and reaching over to a couple cantaloupe vines I put in on the far side from my cuke plantings. I had a dozen quarts of kosher dills and a dozen pints of sweet pickle chunks already put up on shelves by the end of July! August looks good still for more pickling. I've enjoyed countless salads and sharing fresh cukes with family also. I'll definitely plant Homemade Pickles every year. Next year though, I'll give them more room and bigger teepees! Wahoo for the dill and sweet pickles I'll enjoy eating and sharing all year.
