Ideal for containers and small gardens, Organic Bush Pickle Cucumber’s compact vines only spread 24 to 30 inches instead of the 5′ sprawl of classic cucumbers! Her perfect pickling cucumbers are early and abundant; indeed, in early July 2014 we counted 66 fruits on a single plant! We prefer the flavor of the fruits under 5 inches for both fresh eating and pickling.
