National Pickling Cucumber

Developed by the National Pickle Packers, this cucumber is ideal for pickling. The fruit is bulky with a great flavor. Flavors easily absorb through its thin green skin with dark spines. Pick early for gherkins or wait until cukes reach 5-7 inches for pickling and slicing. 55 days to maturity.

Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before planting outdoors. Do not disturb roots during transplanting. Keep soil moist and do not let dry out. Plant in hills or provide trellis or other support for climbing.
