Originally bred for the markets of the Chicago area and released in 1888, this has been the go-to pickling cuke for generations of home gardeners and canners and we are so pleased to offer it! The thin skins accept pickling solutions readily. Black-spined fruit can be allowed to reach 7 inches without sacrificing quality but is often harvested much smaller. Amazingly prolific, and disease resistant, too.
Space 18-36" apart
55 days to maturity
