Container Grown Cucumbers

We’re not the only ones excited for spring! Our cucumber plants are, too! ‘Jackson Classic’ is a pickling-type cucumber that is perfect for containers! Each year we place three plants into large pots and train the vines onto a topiary. This method makes harvesting easy and we haven’t experienced the insect problems we were having when planting them in the garden. Annually, we harvest 60 to 80 cucumbers from these containers. ‘Jackson Classic’ is perfect for making fermented and refrigerator pickles. Remember you can peel, dice and freeze cucumbers for later use in recipes like our probiotic-filled Cucumber Dip! We’ll have plants available in our greenhouse this spring!
