60 days to harvest Cucumis sativus

Friends! What an extraordinary cucumber!

Organic Shintokiwa Cucumber’s smooth-skinned fruit, long & slender, has an impressively small seed cavity & a sweet flavor we’ve never tasted in another cucumber. She’s outrageously crunchy with plenty of juice, resisting becoming bitter even as she lengthens past 12 inches. Wow! We’ve found between 6 and 8 inches long to be the magic length of optimum sweetness. If you’d love Shintokiwa straight, train her up a trellis; if you love to let cucumbers spiral as we do, along the ground you’ll be delighted.

It’s true, we loved ‘Suyo Long’ for many years and now love to sow Organic Shintokiwa Cucumber for her incredible flavor and productivity as well as resistance to Bacterial Wilt.

    No cucumbers beat Japanese cucumbers that are crispy, tasty, and… you don’t have to peel skin off remove seeds. Shin-Tokiwais (meaning New Tokiwa) is one of the popular Japanese cucumbers, and they can be grown trellis or on the ground. When I go hiking, I pack a couple of Shin-Tokiwa in my back pack. Cucumbers are made up of around 96% water, and they are lighter than water bottles! Yes, I’m a big fun of Fuition Seeds because their seeds always germinate and grow well.
