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, few seeds and thin skin. 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.
Watch for, and pick off, cucumber beetles. Releasing Ladybugs deters cucumber beetles and controls aphids.
