Bush Pickle Cucumber (45-53 days)

 

Bush Pickle forms a plant 24-30 inches in diameter.

Early production.

Bush Pickle's cucumbers are straight & cylindrical 4-5 inches.  They look like mini dills.

Sweet, crisp and crunchy. 

Bush Pickle is perfect for salads or pickles.

Great for home gardens and containers.

Perfect for those short on space but love to make their own pickles. 

THERE SIMPLY ISN'T ANOTHER CUCUMBER THAT WILL PRODUCE THIS MUCH, TASTE SO GOOD IN SUCH A SMALL AMOUNT OF SPACE...PERIOD!

***2013 cucumber trials experiened more than a week with temperatures over 100 degrees F and as high as 111.  AND Bush Pickle NEVER got bitter, was almost sweet, it was VERY productive and crunchy...which is exactly what you want in a pickling cucumber.  No one likes soggy dills! 

This is a Farm & Staff favorite.   We believe it to be better than Wisconsin SMR-58 which is touted as the best open pollinated pickling cucumber.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Cucumber:

Soak seeds overnight before planting either individually in rows or hills of 3-6 seeds each.  Tighter spacing and higher yields can be achieved through trellising the plants on fences or poles.  Continually harvesting will keep the plant producing new fruits.

  • Heirloom cucumbers do not like acidic soil! 
  • Frost tender.  Heirloom cucumbers love warm weather.
  • To get an earlier heirloom cucumber crop start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost.
  • Heirloom cucumbers are thirsty!  Never let them go dry.  Heirloom cucumbers are over 95 % water.  
  • Fertilize heirloom cucumbers with manures BEFORE planting.
  • Cucumber beetles are "supposed" to dislike marigolds or wood ashes sprinkled at the base of  cucumber vines.

Seeding Rate for Heirloom Cucumber:

35,000-40,000 plants/acre, 3-4 lb./acre

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
