Chicago Picking Cucumber Plant

This is a great slicing cucumber. Even though it is a "pickling" type cucumber it is crisp, light and refreshing as a slicing cucumber with a sublime sweetness not found in other cucumbers. “Pickling” type cucumbers were popular until the slicer types began to dominate the U.S. market. Pickling types are shorter, wider, bumpier, and have yellow streaks on the skin, but can be used fresh or for pickles. Chicago Pickling was a popular Midwest heirloom since its release in 1888 by D.M. Ferry of Detroit.
