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.
