Jibai Shimoshiraztsu Cucumber (Cucumis sativus)
Jibai Shimoshiraztu Cucumber (Cucumis sativus): this variety from Japan has only one difficulty, its name! Very resistant to fungal attacks, it can be grown both, on the ground and on a net.
Even though those are very attractive features, we selected it for another important reason, its sweetness, there is no sweeter cucumber than this one.
Sown in spring until June, averagely early, very productive, to be harvested when it reaches 20 cm. However, too get the seeds, it should be allowed to ripe fully, when it is about 50 cm and displays an intense yellow colour.
This is one of the best varieties we have grown in terms of taste, productivity, and resistance.
