The thin, tender skin of the National Pickling cucumber seed makes it ideal for pickling since it can easily be flavoured with spices. When young, the fruits are short, dense, and blunt-ended, but as they grow older, they become smooth and cylindrical. In 50-58 days, the medium-large vines produce a strong yield of 6" cucumbers.
