60 day. My favorite cucumber, and my kids' favorite for pickles. It is a slightly sweet cucumber that makes spectacular sweet pickles, but can also be used as a slicer. It's also a joy to grow. With perfect, straight, plump white cucumbers that are easily seen amongst the darker foliage, it's both pretty and delicious.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1/2 inch
Hill Spacing: 3-4 feet
Direct seed in hills of 4-6 seeds after danger of frost has passed. You can start indoors but do so only 3 weeks before transplanting. Be sure to use larger pots because the roots do not like to be disturbed.

I loved the size not too big or little. Easy to grow. Good taste.
Easy to peel. I choose these over other types for fresh eating.
I have been looking for a good cuk for several years and this is one of the two favorites from annie's. I'll be ordering extra seed of this next year.
This variety is a great producer of lovely small cucumbers which are uniform and great for pickling. My children love homemade pickles and these make the best tasting bread-and-butter pickles ever!
I highly recommend Annies Heirloom Boothby Blonde Cucumbers. The cukes often are mistaken for a summer squash (yellow squash at first glance). The color ranges from light yellow to brilliant gold. The taste is superior to any and every other cukes I have in my life. The pickles have a great green hue over the white fruit. The cucumber seems to be more moist than dry inside. Wonderful for cukes and tomatoes, a salad or even a cucumber sandwich. Highly recommended, will by from annies again. Great germination return/production.
This was the first time that I tried the Boothby's Blonde cucumbers. We planted the seeds in a 2' x 4' raised bed frame. We had a ton of pickles just from the 3 plants in that bed. So I made some refrigerator bread and butter pickles. After 3 weeks I opened up a jar to try. They were delicious! These were the best pickles that I had ever tasted. My teenage son came by (never raves much about anything) and decided to try a few. He said "these are absolutely the BEST pickles I have ever tasted". (Now THAT is a big compliment!!) When I have served them for guests, he chimes in again and raves about how good they are. These will always be my #1 favorite.
