Snow's Fancy Pickling Cucumber
(Cucumis sativus)

  Plant produces good yields of 5" long by 1 ˝" wide pickling type cucumbers. These cucumbers have a nice sweet crunch to them and are great making pickles and for salads too. Pick the fruits as soon as large enough to encourage more fruiting. 

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 4-5 feet apart in hills spaced 3 feet. Thin hills to 3 or 4 plants each. The soil should be kept moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Cucumbers like hot weather and plenty of water. Make sure plants get ˝" water per week. 50 - 60 days until maturity.

This variety was introduced in 1905 by Vaughan’s Seed House of Chicago. It was selected by J. C. Snow of the famous Snow Pickle Farm located in Rockford, Illinois. At that time, it fit the requirements for small pickling manufacturing.
