Variety Information: 'Tasty Green' has resistance to powdery mildew and tolerance of downy mildew. Best picked before or at 9" in length.

Type: Monoecious

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°–90°F.

When to Start Inside: 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Cucumbers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots.

Thinning: When 3 leaves, thin to 1 plant every 12"

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

3 out of 5 stars Sep 28, 2018
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).
Doug S from WA
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.

Best cucumbers

5 out of 5 stars Mar 24, 2019
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!

Bought it on a "this looks cool, let's give it a try" kinda attitude. Let me tell you, did not disappoint! Beautiful vines with great looking and tasting cucs. The kids love them, and they get plenty of awesome comments from the neighbors. Plenty to have and share!

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.

Tasty Green Cucumber

5 out of 5 stars Aug 4, 2020
I was amazed at how quickly and easily these seeds germinated and produced the first cucumber in 51 days! I planted 6 seeds - 2 seeds per 4 inch containers, then separated and transplanted them twice into larger individual containers. At first, two of the seedlings were not doing well, but I'm so glad I transplanted them into their larger containers, as they did catch with the other 4 , and are producing lovely cucumbers! The cucumbers are crisp with a mild flavor - I will be planting them again next year.

First time trying this variety

5 out of 5 stars Oct 17, 2020
These cucumbers have done quite well after a late start (May was cold). I forced them to trellis and they are just now winding down. Summer this year was eight weeks of 90-100 degree weather and then a decline into lower 70s/upper 60s. I'm sure they would have been more productive in September if the late Summer weather had been normal (80s) but I think I picked at least a few a week at about 8-14 inches long.

So good!

What a producer! Enough clues for three families from 3 plants. Grew very well trellised and the cukes were VERY tasty no matter what size! Also made great pickles!

Did not grow well

1 out of 5 stars Jan 16, 2021
We planted these tasty green cucs at the same time as another cucumber variety on opposite sides of our garden. The tasty green did not grow well (small, stunted vine that died before flowering) while the other variety produced like crazy. Perhaps this variety is better suited for hydroponics or hot houses or something?
Jill from CT
Owner Response: Hi Jill, These cucumbers can be grown in greenhouses or field grown. It sounds like pests and/or disease may have impacted your plants as environmental conditions would be what we would suspect after plants germinate. We are always happy to help troubleshoot growing issues.

New Favorite Cucumber

5 out of 5 stars Apr 29, 2021
I've grown lots and lots of cucumber varieties, but these hands down were bigger, juicier and sweeter than all the others I grew for several seasons. They produced prolifically for me and lasted well into fall. Produced in intense heat through summer. These are my favorite slicing cucumbers and I will grow them every year.

Good Shade Tolerance

5 out of 5 stars Nov 6, 2021
We grew these in self watering totes in half day shade to dappled shade in afternoon. No pest issues planted next to tomatoes and nasturtiums. Next year we will plant in a sunnier location with afternoon shade for a bigger harvest.

Sweet tasting cukes

After battling critters that dug up my seedlings a few times, these cucumbers are doing very well and taste awesome. They're very sweet with small seeds. They make perfect cucumber sandwiches!
