Description

New Product!

Ideal for gherkins. The original cucumber that made the Chicago-style hot dog famous. Black-spined fruit can be allowed to reach 7” without sacrificing quality, but are often picked much smaller for gherkins — or left larger, for dill spears and bread-and-butter pickles. The thin skin readily takes up brining solutions. Amazingly prolific and resistant to scab and cucumber mosaic.
