Harvesting: Pick, and pick some more! Overly mature cucumbers on the vine will slow production of new cucumbers. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit, as stems are fragile. To increase the quality and storage time, once picked, immediately immerse in cold water to disperse "field heat".

Very mild taste

The mildest tasting cuke I've ever grown. My wife loved them, but I prefer a bit of tartness in a cuke. I've never planted a cucumber variety that was less vigorous or less productive at our coastal location (lots of summer daytime heat, but very cool nights).

Owner Response: Dear Doug, We are sorry that you did not like the 'Tasty Green' Japanese Cucumber. Japanese, English, and Armenian cucumbers are milder than traditional cucumbers. It also sounds like these were not productive for you. Quality is very important to us and we will be in contact shortly to find out more about this issue. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.

I bought these seeds at a local garden center and the cucumbers they produces were fantastic! I love japanese or english cucumbers because they have less seeds. After the growing season was over and I had to start buying cucumbers from the store again, I was so disappointed in the store bought ones flavor compared to these japanese cucumbers. Home grown cucumbers are the best all around for flavor and texture. Love them!

I bought a packet of these seeds from my local greenhouse.I started a few seeds in the house and planted the rest directly in my garden when the weather warmed.All the seeds produced beautiful plants.The cukes were long and thin,firm and crunchy,and the flavor was outstanding.
