Since I love a good kosher dill, I'm thinking I need to grow pickling cucumbers at least one time in my life,and making my own pickles for the first time this year. I know absolutely nothing about growing them, and next to nothing about eating them - except we only like cucumbers processed as pickles:D - ergo the reason for looking for information on cucumbers only on the harvest forum. Surely those who make pickles know the best to grow for making them.
I would really appreciate recommendations for variety that works well for dills. If o.p. or heirloom, all the better. If pests/disease runs rampant around them, I am more than willing to grow resistant hybrids, at least during the learning process. How difficult is this particular crop for an organic grower?
Thank you for any and all insight you can give me into this subject. Crystal
