Boothby's Blonde Cucumber

According to the Seed Savers Exchange website, the Boothby's Blonde Cucumber originated with the Boothby family of Livermore, Maine. It is one of the foods being grown in the Renewing America's Food Traditions (RAFT) Grow-out project.

The plants produce vigorously oval creamy-yellow warty fruits with black spines.

The Boothby's Blonde Cucumber has an excellent crisp sweet flavor, and peeling is not necessary. They are best when eaten about 4" long and are very good for bread and butter pickles.

If you'd like to grow the Boothby's Blonde Cucumber in your own garden, seeds are available at Seed Savers Exchange.
