Cucumber, Addis Pickle (Organic)

Cucumis sativus. Pickling. 55 days.

Pickling type that is also great for fresh eating. This variety was so productive, Sarah ate one almost every day for lunch from the single (under-watered) plant in the kitchen garden from late July into September. Dark green with white spines, 5–7” cylindrical fruit are good for processing. Bred in 1976 by R.L. Lower of North Carolina State University to have resistance to powdery mildew, downy mildew, anthracnose, and angular leaf spot. It is interesting that a southern bred cucumber performs so well in the Pacific Northwest, but it seems to be very widely adapted.

Sow indoors in 2” pots with good potting soil May to mid June. Two weeks after sprouting, transplant to 2 ft centers and 6 ft rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Cucumber plants benefit from floating row cover to protect them from insects and frost while plants are young.

Seed Saving

To save seed, scoop out seeds when the fruit is bloated like a yellow blimp. Rinse off and let dry. Isolate from other varieties of the same species by at least ½ mile.
