The perfect pickler that's particularly perfect for pickling - if you can say that out loud without getting it wrong then you should definitely give our Cucumber Venlo Pickling Gherkin a go!

A wonderful fruit with excellent flavour when added to salads or pickled, these fruits are excellent when young and tender. Sow during April and May for harvesting between mid July and September - ideally sow one seed per 8cm pot to save root disturbance when planting out after frost risk has passed. Cover seeds with 13mm of sieved compost, then grow on and plant out 60cm apart. Water and feed regularly during periods of dry weather.

Most suited to full sun positions, our pickling gherkins are easy to grow and heavy cropping giving you the best of both worlds.
