Rhinish Pickle


Currently unavailable, we suggest Boston Pickling Improved, and Homemade Pickles as alternatives.

55 days — An old German pickling variety. 'Rhinish Pickle' cucumber fruit are crunchy, have small bumps and black spines and are best harvested at about four inches in length. We have, however, harvested much larger sized fruit in the middle of summer that have proved to be excellent for salads and slicing. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 25 to 30 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Cucumbers grow best with long, hot, humid days with maximum sunshine and warm nights. Plants are extremely susceptible to frost. Sow seeds outside only after danger of frost when soil has warmed. Make a second sowing 4 to 5 weeks later for a late summer or early fall harvest. For an earlier harvest and to reduce the threat of insect damage to seedlings, start a few plants indoors in individual pots (or trays with separate compartments) about a month before your last spring frost date.

Sowing: To seed in rows, plant seeds 1 inch deep and about 6 inches apart. To plant in hills, plant four or five seeds in 1-foot-diameter circles set 5 to 6 feet apart.
