A mini plant with major production. Bush Pickle bends the cucumber rules by not vining out and gobbling up garden space like most cukes do. The plants maintain a 24–30 inch diameter so you can cultivate them in containers, or tuck them into gardens where space is at a premium. Jade green, straight, cylindrical fruit are best picked at 5 inches long or under for prime quality. Plants yield large amounts of crispy fruit that are equally delicious fresh or pickled.
Bush Pickle Cucumber
Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground or over the sides of containers, but for longer, straighter fruit with better support, grow the plant in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants in the garden, or one plant per container. Keep plants well-watered, and pick the fruits promptly; they can become tough if left too long on the plant.
