Presenting the National Pickling Cucumber, a standard pickling cucumber variety adored by generations and developed by the National Pickle Packers Association. This heirloom species, officially known as Cucumis sativus, yields crisp, crunchy fruits, plentiful for many harvests.
Reaching maturity in just 60 days, these vines consistently produce a high yield of blocky, tender-skinned fruit that is best identified as one of the superior cucumbers for pickling. Furthermore, the National Pickling Cucumber variety is renowned for its long-lasting quality, holding its characteristic crunchiness even when harvested young, converting it into a top-choice for pickling enthusiasts.
The ideal growing conditions for these pickling cucumber seeds include a lot of sun, so make sure to sow them in a sunny location in your garden. For smaller gardens, we recommend planting this variety along a fence or trellis.
The fruits have a dark green, appealing color and feature black spines. For gherkins, harvest them when they're 2 to 3 inches long or wait till they reach 4 inches if you prefer eating them fresh as slicers. You can also choose to let them mature to their full size (an average of 1¼ pounds). Regardless of their stage, they always present an exquisite flavor profile. Besides yielding heavily all season long, the variety exhibits robust resistance to scab and cucumber mosaic virus, guaranteeing a fruitful harvest.
