Cucumis melo

NOT TO NZ


  • Great for pickling
  • Good disease resistance


This heirloom variety was originally released in the late 1800's but was 'improved' sometime around 1950 to give it better disease resistance. It's the perfect variety for making pickles. Cucumbers grow to around 15cm if let to mature but are normally harvested at around 5-10cm for pickling. Crunchy texture. Mature cucumbers are good for slicing in salads. Long producing.

Row Spacing: 120cm
Position: Full sun, moist well drained soil
Plant Spacing: 40cm
Hardiness: Frost tender
Days to Maturity/flowering: 55 days
Care: Can be grown on ground or as a climber. Pick regularly to encourage more fruit. Avoid overhead watering.

Boston Pickling Cucumber

By: on 8 October 2016
I have planted these little beauties for the past three years and have never had a bad year. They produce large amounts of very nice small fruit. I can a few jars of Pickles a year and have found that the family prefer these over other cucumber types to eat raw.
