Aonaga Jibai Cucumber

         
 
7 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Exceptionally sweet, tender, and above all--tough. Aonaga Jibai is one of our finds from a recent seed saving expedition to Japan. Known in the southern islands of Japan, the seeds have been preserved over generations by an old family in Beppu City on Kyushu Island. The long, slender 8-inch fruit is bitter free and super sweet with inconspicuous seeds, making it a perfect marketing cucumber with flavor that stands out from the rest! From the 1939 seed catalog of Tanaka & Co. “Hardiness and prolific bearing character are meritorious features of Japanese varieties of cucumber. They withstand drought, moisture and attack of fungoid disease to a remarkable degree.”

Review:

Prolific beautiful cucumbers that are so sweet. We pick them and many times they don’t even make it into the house and if they do, they don’t always make it to a salad.My daughter and I love them!

Review:

I admit that I had several seedlings taken from me early on. It had nothing to do with this particular strain of cucumber but my newly amended beds were infested with pill bugs that took a liking to my new seedlings. I was left with one lonely Aonaga baby but it made it and it has produced more cucumbers than I know what to do with! I'm a little afraid of how many cucumbers I would have had if the pill bugs didn't get to the plants first. They are extra yummy with NO BITTERNESS. We get a decent heat wave during the summer which typically results in a batch of cucumbers being composted because they are so bitter but these precious gems have remained bitter-free and sweet during the heat. I am going to attempt to save some seeds but since I replaced some of my decimated Aonaga babies with double yield pickling cucumbers, I may have a hard time trying to isolate one Aonaga for seed saving so Baker Creek will be getting a repeat order from me on this one. What a great find!!!

Review:

This is my first year gardening. These cucumbers terminated very well, grew fast and strong and are producing a large amount of cucumbers. I may try a different variety next year, but will keep two of these plants as well. The taste is very good, with a nice crunch to them.

Review:

Oh man, what a great cuke. This is the first year I have attempted these guys and am super thrilled. The plants are hardy and vigorous with an apparent resistance to powdery mildew. This has been an ongoing issue in my garden for years and although an adjacent melon and different variety of cucumber are being actively treated for the problem, there is no evidence that the Aonagas has even a whiff of mildew. The fruits are incredibly fun to watch day by day as they start as skinny, spiky snakes no thicker than a pencil, and only after achieving a certain length do they plump up into gorgeous sizable cucumbers. The flavor is the best I've tasted as well. There is more flesh than seeds, no bitterness, and sweet as a cucumber could be. They make a fantastic munching cuke or make for an awesome salad when you pair these sweet buggers with an acidic vinaigrette. I couldn't be more pleased and will grow these again in the future.

Review:

I love this cuke! Been looking for a good “English” style slicing variety for a couple years and this one has earned a permenant spot in the garden. Unique but good taste- I would describe it as almost fruity but you still definitely know you are eating a cucumber. All that I’ve picked have been about a foot long and not seedy at all. Plants are productive and climb a vertical trellis well.
