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.

Just too bitter for eating

What are the pros? Grows well, prolific

What are the cons? Bitter and not edible

Review:

While this plant was prolific and gave a lot of cucumbers, they were just too bitter for consumption. I tried peeling them but still the strong bitter taste was just too much for eating. My chickens wouldn't even eat them. They received the same care as my other cucumber plants with sufficient light, water and nutrients, but it didn't seem to change anything. I now throw them into my yard waste as I pick them.

What are the pros? Can tolerate high temperatures

What are the cons? big seeds

Review:

Getting things to grow in California's hi desert is truly a challenge, but in a raised garden with plastic fencing to keep out our numerous ground animals, some shade cloth, and regular drip watering, I grew them in a much too small a garden where they competed with zucchini, and other squash plants. So dense that I did not discover my first two until they were yellow. I peeled them and find the flavor quite subtle and refreshing.

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.

Thick skinned too many seeds
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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.
