EVERY YEAR WE GROW A LARGE QUANTITY OF PICKLING CUCUMBERS. WHAT MAKES A PICKLING CUCUMBER SPECIAL? THIS SPECIAL VARIETY IS FIRMER THAN THE REGULAR SLICING VARIETY AND HAS AN THINNER SKIN. THEY ARE USUALLY LESS BITTER AND MANY OF OUR CUSTOMERS LOVE THEM FOR EATING FRESH.
Pickling cucumber season is closed for 2022
During Cucumber season U-Pick opportunities will still be available on Saturday Morning from 7:00 until noon. It is not good for the cucumbers or the plants (Or for people either) to pick in the heat of the day so no picking will be allowed after 12:00. Calling ahead is not required but it will help me to schedule my picking crew.
We take special orders starting sometime each spring. You will be asked, what date, how many and what size you would like. As a rule of thumb it takes 1 lb of cucumbers for each quart of pickles you want to make.
We have designated the following sizes:
Gherkins - 2-3 inches long and approximately 1/2 inch in diameter
Small Dills - 3-4 inches long and approximately 3/4 inch in diameter
Bread and Butter - 5-6 inches and approximately 1 inch on diameter
Extra large - anything bigger than a Bread and Butter
Orders are usually available for pick up by 12:00.
