55 days. Originally bred for the markets of the Chicago area. Released in 1888, this has been the go-to pickling cuke for generations of home gardeners and canners, and we are so pleased to offer it! The thin skins take up pickling solutions readily. Black-spined fruit can be allowed to reach 7 inches without sacrificing quality, but is often harvested much smaller. Amazingly prolific, and disease resistant, too.
