Heirloom. A favorite of gardeners for high yields of short cukes with solid flesh. Cucumbers are thin-skinned, straight with full ends, and a nice green color. Vines bear continuously. Flesh is crisp and very receptive to pickling spices. Great for any pickling recipe, whether sweets or dills. May be harvested at sizes from 3 to 7 inches, depending on your pickling needs.

Plants resist scab and are tolerant to cucumber mosaic.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cucumbers! My first year of learning and growing this cucumbers,I loved it. It tastes crunchy and very sweet. When it time to harvest, almost everyday I had 3-4 cucumbers. I threw away some (my compost bin) when I forgot to check it everyday or didn't see it, it grew so big and ripened so quick! :-( Definitely, I will grow it again next year. Highly recommend Bonnie Plants to friends and other gardeners for its offered products. Their vegetable plants were strong and healthy , I'm satisfied. Thank you .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent pickles from these cucumbers Moderate harvest. It got wicked hot here in Virginia this year and I thought cucumbers love the heat. What we did get made excellent sweet butter pickles. I will plant these again next year but in a different location and try to find some bees!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boston Heirloom Pickling Cucumber Purchased two plants from Home Depot with photo on Bonnie tag that looked like a regular green cucumber. Plants have produced a number of "cucumbers" that are the size and shape of large russet potatoes, orange in color with an average weight of one and a half pounds each. Not sure what to do with them but will not plant again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd year in a row, and I still love them! I've grown these Bonnie Plant Boston Pickling Cucumbers for three years now and they are the best! They grow fantastically!! I didn't rotate my crops this year, so my yield is down a little but not by much...I'm still pulling cucumbers almost everyday AND I'm still pickling them! And let me tell you, they make fantastic pickles!! (so they are true to their name). The only thing that stinks is trying to keep bees continually pollinating, sometimes I have to hand pollinate, but no biggie. I do fertilize with 8-8-8 with these guys too and you have to put a trellis up for them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent For Canned Dills: Was looking for salad cucumbers, only plants could find left at local supplier were Boston Picklers, so I thought would give them a try. Yield was so high wife and I thought we would try our hand at canning them as dills. 4 plants have resulted in 25 quarts not counting ones that were eaten in salads or just by themselves. Feel yield would have been greater if not for current drought. Skins are just thick enough plus a great body texture. We used a prepackaged kosher pickle mix (M-- W---s) with great success. Have not tried as sweet pickle but sure result would be as good. Will definitely plant these again next year!
