Shintokiwa Japanese Cucumber - Organic
10 seeds per packet approx.
Long, thin skinned fruit with a small seed cavity and exceptional flavor and crunch.
Plants are vigorous and produce, long, slender fruit that resists bitterness as they mature. Even when harvested at a larger size, fruit is juicy with bright, crisp texture and a sweet, vibrant flavor. A superior producer of uniform, long cucumbers that can be trellised for straight fruits. Harvest when cucumbers are thin and 9 inches long or shorter for optimal sweetness. Introduced by Japanese Rudolf Steiner students and stewarded by biodynamic seed grower Harald Hoven for years. Now stewarded by Meadowlark Hearth Biodynamic Seed Initiative.
