Description
Snow's Fancy Pickling
60 days — The plants produce good yields of five inch long by one and one-half inch in diameter cucumbers. They have a nice sweet crunch to them and although they are great for salads, they were developed to be used primarily for pickling.  Keep the cucumbers picked to encourage more fruit production throughout the season.

This variety was reportedly developed as a selection of 'Chicago Pickling' by Mr. Junius C. Snow, a pickle producer in Rockford, Illinois around the turn of the 20th Century.  By 1905, Vaughan’s Seed House of Chicago offered it in their catalog.[1] It is a good choice for small pickle production. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 35 to 40 seeds.

  2. The Rockford Pickle Works was located on the 4600 block of North Second Street in Rockford, Illinois.  Beginning as a 106 acre farm purchased by Hiram Snow in 1881, he began by planting cucumbers and over the years, he expanded his operation by building a processing facility, ice house, barn and his personal residence. He produced sweet and dill pickles that became quite popular and business boomed for many years. In early 1903, four weeks before he died, Hiram turned operations over to his son Junius.  Sugar became during WWI and couple with skyrocketing prices after the end of the war, the company was forced to close in 1922. It subsequently burned to the ground in 1933. [RockfordReminisce.com]
