Chicago Pickling Cucumber   (Cucumis sativus)

  Very similar to the Snows fancy pickling cucumber this plant produces good yields of 5" long by 1 " wide pickling type cucumbers. These cucumbers have a nice crunch to them and are great for salads too. Pick the fruits as soon as large enough to encourage more fruiting. They are very prolific and will produce all summer long for regular pickling sessions.

Sow seeds in full sun when soil temps are at least 70F . Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Sow about 1 inch to 1 inches deep. Plant in rows 5 to 6 feet apart or in hills spaced 3 to 5 feet. Thin hills to 2 or 3 plants each. Plants will grow to 18 - 24 inches tall and spread to an average of 2 feet. The soil should be continuously moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Make sure plants get " water per week. 50 - 60 days until maturity.
