Seed Savers Exchange Cucumber, Snow's Fancy Pickling
(aka Snow’s Pickling) Selected from Chicago Pickling by J. C. Snow of the famous Snow Pickle Farm in Rockford, IL. Listed circa 1905 by Vaughan Seed House of Chicago. Once a very popular small pickle, can still be used to make fancy pickles today. Dark green, short and slender (5" long by 1½" wide), thin flesh. 50-60 days.
This crop can be direct seeded into the soil after the last spring frost. You can also start plants indoors 3-6 weeks before the last frost date.
Make sure that your soil is well fertilized as this crop is a heavy feeder and takes a lot of nutrients from the soil. Consider adding compost to the soil the year before you plant.
