Delicious long Asian cucumbers.
Vigorous, high-yielding plants produce glossy, thin-skinned, 11-12″ long fruit with small seed cavities and bitter-free fruit. No peeling required. Sweeter and more crisp than any other long Japanese cucumbers. Also, Tasty Jade is among the few parthenocarpic varieties of this type available today.
Parthenocarpic cucumbers or “burpless” cucumbers are the product of highly specific breeding that results in plants that are capable of producing fruits without ever being pollinated. These cucumbers produce few or no seeds, any seeds that do ripen will not be fertile — parthenocarpic cucumber seeds must be sourced yearly.
You must have nighttime temperatures above 55°F in order to grow. Not recommended for indoor growing.
