Cucumis sativus

HEIRLOOM Pickle, pickle, pickle! Of course that’s not the only way to eat a cucumber, but it’s certainly a popular one. These smooth, bright green, 5-6″ blunt-ended fruits are just the right size for the jar. Keep picked for high yields from this vining plant.
These crisp juicy fruits seem to sit around lazily on the ground, just waiting to plucked because nothing quenches the thirst on a hot day in late July quite like a cucumber. While most people are familiar with the common dark green slicer cukes, they actually come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and even colors. Any cucumber can be pickled, but some varieties are bred for uniformity and girth and are specifically labeled for pickling. Slicers, which are mostly eaten fresh, are thinner and longer with some that can even grow up to two feet if given the opportunity. Nutrients: vitamins A, C, K, B6, folate, thiamin, potassium, magnesium.

    :

    We grew these last year. They turned our really well, in spite of the fact that I put them out a little earlier than I ought to have. In fact, these lasted a lot longer than many of our other veggies. I was really surprised. Beautiful leaves. Healthy plants. Good food.

    I canned 19 quarts of pickles last summer, loved watching the plants get huge and the bees all over the many flowers.
