All types of cucumbers are good to eat fresh and all can be pickled. Pickling cucumbers are well-suited for pickling (before they get too big) because they have fewer seeds and are a bit firmer than slicing cucumbers. But most people don’t know the difference. You can pickle any cucumber you grow using our Food Hero Recipe: Refrigerator Pickled Cucumbers.
