Reliable and heavy producer of stubby pickling cucumbers. Pick young for fresh eating or baby gherkins, or grow large for big dills. The best choice for lacto-fermented pickles, as it stays crisper than most other varieties. After letting the first fruits mature for seed at our farm, we get a continuous supply of cukes until the frost. Originally developed by the National Pickle Packers Association, this is the best heirloom pickling cucumber we’ve tried.
