Cucumis sativus

The pickle plant for smaller spaces. Compact bush plant takes half the space of standard vine types while producing medium green 4-5″ crispy fruit. Sow two plantings for continuous harvest. Grows well in containers.
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.

    Best pickling cuke I’ve ever had. Very prolific and hearty plant. I grew it in both ground and containers. Both did very well considering the drought conditions we faced in Northern CA. Fruit was still juicy and made for excellent pickles. I like the bushy plant because it doesn’t take as much space as the vine plants, but I still recommend using some sort of trellis system to train the bush to grow upward, especially in square foot growing.
