How to Grow Boston Pickling Cucumbers

When to Plant Cucumber Seeds

Cucumbers should be directly sown a 3-4 weeks after the last frost in the spring. They can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost, using a grow light and seed starting soil mix.

Where to Plant Cucumber Seeds

Plant Cucumbers in an area that receives full sun in rich, well-draining soil.

How to Plant Cucumber Seeds

You can amend your soil with compost or aged manure prior to planting. Preferably in the fall so it will over-winter. Plant ½ inch deep and about 1 inch apart. Alternatively, you can create hills 4 – 6 feet apart, with 6-8 seeds per hill. Cut the three weakest plants once seedling emerge for this method. Make sure to keep soil moist, avoid letting the soil dry out completely. Germination generally takes around 10 days when temperatures are ~70 degrees. They are vine plants, so setting up a trellis may be beneficial depending on your garden.

How to Harvest Cucumbers

Harvest before they are fully mature, as cucumbers tend to get seedy once they’re at their largest. They grow very fast, so be sure to check often to see if it’s time to harvest. Make sure to cut them off the vine, as pulling them off can damage or break the vine, preventing further production.

  1. Never made it to pickling!

    Great tasting crisp little cuke. First had them when my sister-in-law made bread and butter pickles with them. My mom planted them and we used them with just salt, in salads, with just vinegar and salt. Any way you can use a cucumber, including if you end up having enough to make pickles. I bought these seeds from Eden Brothers in 2012 but ended up in hospital for 3 months, decided to plant them in 2013, only have a small deck and planted them in an Earthbox, didn't disappoint. Even planted in 2014 and 2015 and still produced good cucumbers. They finally started to deteriorate in 2016 and didn't get many cucumbers even though the plants grew well. Wasn't going to plant cucumbers last year but missed these so much. Ordering more today with a few other things
