Specially developed by the US National Pickle Packers Association in 1929.
This variety was made to fit perfectly into a pickle jar. This variety produces an abundance of 12-17-centimetre-long cucumbers.
The few seeds produced are tiny and don't affect the texture.
Eat them fresh, in salads, or juiced. Their flavour and crunch are exceptional when turned into dill or bread and butter pickles.
Pick them small at 5cm for pickling or 10cm for slicing.
The plants produce fruits over a long season.
Plants have an excellent tolerance to downy and powdery mildew; the national pickling cucumber is far more resistant than most other pickling varieties.
Cucumbers are a warm-season crop; they will thrive when grown under full sun. The best way to sow them is in well-drained soil with compost and mature animal manure mixed trough.
Sow 2-3 seeds in a mound and thin to the strongest two directly in the garden 10mm deep and 50cm apart, with rows 100cm apart. Keep soil moist and avoid drying out.
Germination occurs in around 5-10 days at an optimum soil temperature of 18-34°C
Tropical: Spring and Autumn
Temperate: Spring and Summer.
Cool climate: Late Spring and summer.
Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
