Beautiful, yellow-orange cucumber from mainland China, the young fruit is green. 10” fruit are as crisp as an apple. Very mild and delicious, great for slicing or for pickles. This was our largest-yielding variety ever -- just a few plants produced hundreds of cucumbers! Our favorite cucumber for 2003. A very rare Chinese heirloom.

What are the pros? Proliferic

What are the cons? Hard skin

Review:

I really hate that I am even writing a poor review on something, but still after a year I cannot get over the hard skin of these cucumbers. I really wanted to like them so I picked and ate at every stage in the entire growing season, but just didn't like the skin. It was very thick/ tough with a bitter taste. I normally always eat skin/peels so it was weird peeling them to enjoy. Seeds are big and harder too, but flesh is great.

What are the pros? Uniform shape and size

What are the cons? None

Review:

Surprisingly good! They take a lot of care during the monsoons to prevent them from lying in standing water, but they turned out great. The smallest size so far has been 2.5lbs! They are slightly bitter, but we like dressing them up like you get them at a Japanese restaurant with Ponzu, so perfect for us.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, produced well

What are the cons? Thick skinned, too many seeds

Review:

These cukes grow well, but don't wait until they're yellow to pick them! I grew these expecting their color to mature as they ripened, but by the time they're even half yellow, they are mostly seeds and skin. The seeds are very thick and hard, so not great for eating.

What are the pros? Easy, Prolific

What are the cons? Seedy

Review:

As mentioned, very prolific! These tough little vines out competed nearby pumpkins. They were very pretty in color. I found them tasty in the green stage, but once they turned yellow they were very, very seedy. The seed cavity was so large that there was barely 1cm of flesh.

What are the pros? good flavor and crispness.

What are the cons? Need to peel (well worth it)

Review:

This is the third year I have grown these in Texas. They did very well with the drought here with less watering than the others. Straight 8 and a few other cucumbers just did not make it through our heat. They are refreshing to eat, so crisp and light tasting.
