If you’re looking for a plant that produces tons of cucumbers for pickling or eating straight off the vine, look no further. Double Yield cucumbers are unrivaled for the number of cucumbers the plant produces. Introduced in the 1920s, these relatively small cucumbers—4 to 6 inches long—are medium to yellow green with black spikes and rounded on the ends. They are ready for harvest around 52 days after sowing. Have your pickling jars ready, because you’ll get a bushel full of fruit from just a couple of plants.
