Asian heirloom cucumber producing lots of long, slender and ribbed, burpless deep green cukes with a fine delicate flavor and crispy texture that cucumber lovers will treasure.


Plant heat loving cucumbers only when weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay above 50° F (10° C). Amend soil well with aged manure or compost. Sow in groups of 2 to 3 seeds 18 in. apart and 1 inch deep.

When seedlings are 2 in. tall, thin out extras, leaving one strong seedling per group. After thinning, put 4–5 ft. vertical supports or individual tomato cages around each seedling and train vines up supports as they grow. This method makes it easier to harvest straight fruits, saves garden space, and helps prevent further disease.


Protect seedlings from marauding birds with plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Shallow-rooted vines need adequate and consistent moisture to produce sweet tasting, nicely formed cucumbers. Avoid overly wet or dry periods for good quality fruits.


Cut rather than pull fruits from vines before seeds are large inside. Harvest every few days for longest fruit production. These juicy tender cucumbers need no peeling. Slice and enjoy for refreshing snacks, in salads and sandwiches. Eat cucumbers within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality.
