We were really impressed with this long, slender, smooth skinned cucumber from Japan. 24-30 cm fruits are crisp and flavourful with no bitterness. Did I mention productive? Trellis the plants for buckets of really straight fruit or let them sprawl on the ground for what you might call artistic-shaped fruit. Harvest when slender for the best flavor and texture. A new farm favourite.
