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.

Ratings & Reviews

Boston pickling cucumber

Planted seeds in spring for abundant harvest in summer, good for both salads and pickling and seem to tolerate Sydney’s humidity well.

Boston Pickling Cucumber

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.
