Boston Pickling Cucumber is a time tested American Heirloom that dates back to the late 1800s. As early as 1883 Joseph Breck & Son, a popular seed company of in Boston wrote a review of this cultivar ..
"Extensively grown by the market gardeners in the vicinity of Boston. It is very productive and of superior color and quality."
250 years later it is still getting great reviews by American Gardeners, in fact I was unable to find a single negative review on any contemporary sites. This only bore out my own experience with this cuke - it is excellent for pickling, but not limited to pickles as it works well as a fresh cucumber also.
