This mild cucumber can be used young for slicing but is more commonly used as a ingredient in Chinese soup-making. The fruit starts green, then turns yellow, before appearing a leathery, orangey-brown at maturity. Excellent yield.
Best direct-seeded at about the time of last frost, but can be started earlier as transplants, provided the seedlings are set out before becoming rootbound. Cucumbers are heavy feeders and thrive in rich soil full of organic matter. They can be trellised if desired. A bit of afternoon shade is helpful in very hot summer-areas. Supply abundant moisture and keep picking mature fruit.
