Delectable variety from Japan. The sweetest cucumber we have tasted, a perfect snacking cucumber with no bitter flavor! Produces shorter, slightly thicker fruit than other Japanese varieties. Can be grown on the ground or on poles and is vigorous. Deep green fruit is about 7-8” long. Adapted to high temperature, humidity, and is disease and powdery mildew resistant.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? Tasteless

Review:

I'm not a fan of these cucumbers at all. They grow huge and are easy to grow but they are absolutely tasteless regardless if I let them grow to full size or pick them earlier. You also must use them the same day you pick them or they turn to rubber and lose any crispness. The Japanese Cuke from Kitazawa seed that I grew last year were far superior to these.

Review:

I live in 8a. It gets very hot here in the summer. All my other cucumber varieties couldn’t handle the heat and sun. This variety did have a little trouble but have began to come back again.

What are the pros? Good productivity. Very mild.

What are the cons? None.

Review:

These are the best tasting cucumbers I have grown. The skin is very thin and the seeds are very small. Next year I will skip the Suyo long Japanese cucumbers and plant more of these. This variety has been very resistant to powdery mildew so far this year.

What are the pros? Nice BIG Cuc, Not Bitter

What are the cons? Took a while to get growing

Review:

Grown in So Cal in zone 9b: While all my other cucumbers have long since died due to powdery mildew, these cucs are growing strong. Just had our first cucumber and we harvested about the size of the largest cucumber in the photo of the boy holding the cucumbers. The skin was thin and had very few spikes. I just brushed off the spikes with a paper towel after rinsing, it was no big deal. I was fearful that it would be tough, have lots of seeds and the skin might be bitter due to the size, however I was wrong on all counts. The skin was thin, there were very little seeds and it tasted great...it wasn't bitter at all. I was very surprised on all counts. We have had unusual weather for us here, lots of rain an a marine layer that has come in almost daily and then we will have days of blistering heat. I'm thrilled to have any cucumbers at all, and these I will be planting again, year after year!! Highly recommend.

What are the pros? Outstanding vigor and size

What are the cons? Small issues of powdery mildew

Review:

That was some early spring excessive rains brought about a bit of powdery mildew, though easily dealt with, the plants excelled and have climbed 8 foot trellises by July. The leaves are 12 to 16 inches wide and the vines are nearly an inch thick and there are dozens of flowers. Is taking fertilization great and in pretty high levels. Fun to grow
