Plant Information
Introduced around 1880, Boston Pickling cucumbers have always been a popular and consistent variety, producing small, dark green, smooth-skinned fruits with beautiful black spines. Their snappy texture and stockier size (5-7 inches in length and 2-3 inches wide) make them ideal for pickling, but they certainly have a lot to offer when it comes to salads too. Like most cucumber varieties, Boston Pickling plants produce heavy and continuous yields, so you can experiment with your cucumber harvesting times based on how you want to enjoy them. As a general rule, pick your cukes when they're about 5 inches long when the texture is still firm and the seeds are small. This helps ensure the best flavor and optimal crispness. Harvest them even earlier for "baby" pickles, and pick every 2-4 days to encourage more fruit to form.
