Non-GMO, open-pollinated Rhinish Pickle Cucumber Seeds from True Leaf Market produce heirloom pickling cucumbers with black spines and small bumps. Growing between 4" and 6" long, Rhinish pickle cucumbers are best for making delicious pickles when they are picked at 4". With a crisp, crunchy texture, they can also be eaten fresh on salads. These heirloom cucumber seeds come from Mountain Valley Seed Co., which is a small, family-owned seed company known for supplying premium-quality seeds to both home growers and fresh market producers. 55 to 65 days to maturity.
These German heirloom pickling cucumbers, or Vorgebirdstauben, are early maturing cucumbers (55 to 65 days) that grow well in nitrogen-rich soil with a nearly neutral pH. Cucumber plants are very sensitive to frost, but their early maturity allows you to either directly sow them into the garden when the soil is at least 65 degrees F or to start them indoors 3 to 4 weeks before transplanting for a very early harvest.
Cucumber plants have a vining habit and do well when they are supported by a trellis system, which will promote proper airflow, keep the fruit off the ground, and save square footage in the garden.
Various Uses for Rhinish Pickle Cucumber:
The Rhinish pickle cucumber, like the name indicates, is traditionally a pickling cucumber. However, it can also be enjoyed fresh on salads or as an item for dipping.
Because cucumbers contain mostly water and have caffeic acid, they are often cut into slices and placed over the eyes to treat puffiness.
Rhinish Pickle Cucumber Benefits:
Unpeeled cucumbers are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and other nutrients. Cucumbers are especially high in vitamin K and potassium. Cucumbers promote hydration and digestive regularity, and may help to keep blood sugar levels lower. When pickled, they can be a healthy source of probiotic bacteria that support digestion.
Cucumbers are in the Cucurbitaceae family, which is the same family as squashes and melons. Because of their shared family they may attract the same types of pests. To reduce disease pressure, it is recommended that you rotate the location of your garden cucumbers so they are not grown where cucumbers have been in the past 2 years.
