There are two basic types of cucumbers: slicing (both "English" and "Slicing") cucumbers which are normally eaten fresh; and those grown specifically for pickling. However, any of the cucumbers can be pickled for different tastes and textures.
Pickling cucumbers are often sous vided in Mason jars. Once cooled, these can be placed in the refrigerator for about 2 months.
Canning your homemade pickled cucumbers is the best way to store them for an even longer time.
