Cucumis sativus

Parisian Pickle Cucumber Seeds (50 days for pickles  67 for slicing)

Seed Package contains 1 gram 25-35 seeds

Parisian Pickle, also called Improved Bourbonne, is a French heirloom cucumber that was widely used for gherkins in the late 1800s. 

The skin is bright green in color with dark green spots. 

Parisian Pickle has firm flesh that holds well and contributes to its value as a crisp pickling type. 

Very uniform in shape which is important when trying to get all those little devils in canning jars!

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.
