Parisian Pickling cucumbers are perfect for pickling! They're a historic French heirloom variety used in the late 1800s to manufacture gherkins (cornichons). Listed in the United States in 1982, these versatile cucumbers are excellent for pickling when small or a slicing cucumber when larger.
- GROWING TIPS
- SEED FACTS
Plant seeds directly in the garden in the spring after the danger of frost has passed, roughly 1-2 weeks after the average last frost date and when daytime temps are near 70°F. Sow 5-6 seeds per hill and thin to 2-3 plants. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-80 degrees. For transplants, start seed indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Transplant to the garden 2-3 weeks after your average last frost date. Harvest when small & pick daily. Mature cucumbers on the vine slow production of new fruit.

Our Parisian cucumbers gave us an incredibly large harvest and has been producing well for over a month. Our kids eat these right off the vine, so the flavor must be right (I confirm it is). Maybe we'll have some left for pickling.
