Yamato Extra Long Cucumber

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A big variety from Japan. This long, slender variety is an excellent variety for sushi or snacking. Japanese cucumbers are among the best in the world, with sweet, nutty flavor and thin skin with few seeds. Fruit can reach up to 2 feet long; grow up a trellis for straight, uniform fruit. Plants are notably disease and pest resistant and bear an impressive abundance of high-quality fruit.

What are the pros? early maturity

What are the cons? Bitter stem end, tough skin

Review:

While these cucumbers mature very fast, about 1/3 of the cucumber from the stem end is very bitter and the rest does not have a great deal of flavor. The skin is also not tender and the cucumber is best eaten peeled. I won't be buying this variety again.

What are the pros? Very prolific

What are the cons? Bitter ends, large seeds

Review:

Grown in the ground in Ohio and in an Earth Box in Pennsylvania. Same results for both. The ends were very bitter and the seeds were much larger than other Japanese types I have grown. Granted, I normally grow hybrid varieties.They do produce abundantly but if I grow non-hybrid again, if will be Suyo Long which I have tried and liked.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Incredibly bitter

Review:

The vine was absolutely prolific. The problem was that the cucumbers were so very bitter, that even with salting, they were inedible. I do recall that at the beginning of the season, only part of the cucumber was bitter, but that was only for the first 2 cucumbers. All the cucumbers since then have been incredibly bitter. Such a disappointment.

Good cucumber
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Taste good

What are the cons? Soften too quickly

Review:

A good cucumber. Mine were not bitter anywhere. I had 2 plants next to each other on one 8’ high cattle panel. Flavor was very good, but my cucumbers became soft within the day of picking. For that reason I am not going to grow it again. I don’t remember suyo long doing this. As far as disease resistance, all my cucumbers get leaf diseases eventually, but I get plenty by then. Yamato is starting to show leaf issues, but has produced some nice long slender cucumbers

What are the pros? Tasty, long, juicy

What are the cons? Slower then others,

Review:

These cucumbers are yummy and juicy. Not bitter at all. They are slower growing and did take longer to start kicking them out and they aren't as prolific as some of our other varieties but they are still yummy. They also have a little bit of leaf issues going on...likely due to the heat. I didn't have filtered sun so it is likely from the upper 90 degree temps and full on sun so considering that, they are really taking the heat like a champ. I'd grow these again but I wouldn't rely on them as my only cucumber source.
