Pickling - Cucumbers
What makes for a good picking cucumber? Pickling cucumbers typically have a firmer texture than slicing cucumbers, so they can hold onto that nice crunch after preserving. They should have small, underdeveloped seeds or no seeds at all, as large seeds can be unpleasant to eat and can make pickling difficult. Pickling cucumbers should be prolific, producing a high yield of cucumbers per plant, to ensure that you have enough to fill your jars, and they should be disease resistant so that you don't lose any of your harvest. With tested and proven pickling cucumbers, Gardens Alives' cukes offer all that and more! Each of these fine species offers a mild, slightly sweet flavor that complements the tanginess of the pickling brine.
