Description / Alibi Cucumber Seeds

Days to Maturity: 52 to 55

For my time and money, there is no finer cucumber for making sweet gherkins than Alibi. The fruit is absolutely delectable, with a good texture that holds up well for pickling, a perfect shape, and huge yields on space-saving plants.

This fruit reaches 4 inches long if you let it, but it will be more tender and succulent if you pick it much smaller (at about the size of your pinkie). It arises on very compact vines that take up less space in the garden. North Carolina State University performed extensive garden trials on Alibi and found that it scored very well for yields and for various measures of fruit quality. This is a top-notch cuke you won't want to miss.

Direct sow seeds in a sunny spot after all danger of frost is past, or start indoors and transplant when the first true leaf appears. Cucumbers can be allowed to grow on the ground, but for longer, straighter fruit and to save garden space, grow them in a cage or on a trellis, allowing 1 foot between plants. Keep them well watered, and keep the fruits picked promptly.

Great for Fermented Pickles
Review by Carol
I allow to get about 4" and make fermented spicy garlic dill pickles. Super crunchy. Cucumber grows straight so it's easy to pack in the jars.

Very Happy
Review by Caco
I live in an apartment so I only planted 2 seeds, both grew very well until we got hit with a hellishly hot day and 1 died. Grateful it did because the remaining plant has exploded absolutely everywhere and is currently loaded with flowers and lil cucumbers. Looking forward to pickling soon

Great Pickling Cuke!!
Review by Nancy Wilson
I grew this cucumber and another variety (National Pickling) alongside it this summer (2016). I caged both and treated them the same throughout the summer (daily waterings and feedings every other week). The Alibi cukes were more uniform in shape and size (even when I missed one day's watering), while the National Pickling were slightly bulged due to the inconsistency in watering. It's the end of July, and I'm going to take a few Alibi cuttings and try to propagate them. I'm in Griffin, Georgia (40 miles south of Atlanta), and we usually have warm temperatures until the middle of November. Next year, I'll have to remember to propagate a second round of cukes about the end of June.

HUGE yields.
Review by dulcevita
Great success with Alibi 2 years in a row. I grew Alibi against the lattice panels that surround my garden. I couldn't keep up with its massive yields. Fantastic flavor whether picked tiny or full grown. I had no problem with pests or disease whatsoever. I highly recommend.
