Cucumber, Morden Early Pickling (Organic)

Cucumis sativus. Pickling. 45-50 days.

Very early and productive pickling type cucumber. Compact vines are good for
container production or those with limited space. Quickly produces lots of fruit, which are great for pickles when small but also delicious sliced and eaten fresh. Fruit have the classic pickle appearance: dark green with soft white spines and some slight ridges. Plants are cold weather tolerant, great for northern and short season areas. Introduced in 1956 by the Morden Research Station in Morden, Manitoba, Canada.


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 1⁄2 mile.
