Product Description

Cucumber -  Suhyo OG Asian

Cucumis sativus

 

30 Seeds

 

A vigorous hybrid sooyow-type Japanese cucumber has its origins in Northern China. It is easy to grow with good disease and mildew resistance. The dark green skin has defined ribbing and fine white spines. Fruits mature at 10-12" long and have excellent flavor and quality. This variety is suitable for open field growing and has a monoecious flowering habit (plant produces both male and female flowers.  Open-pollinated. Known for its sweet mild burpless flavor, this Asian cucumber grows up to 15" long with a curly shape if unsupported. For straighter fruit that packs better Jason Kafka grows these in his greenhouse in vertical hedges, stretching Trellis Plus netting between conduits. According to Tom Vigue these make good dense pickling cukes if picked young enough. Sets well in heat. Used for pickling or salads. Cut cubes of very ripe cucumbers and add to soup. Sooyow varieties are choice for pickling because of their crisp texture and small seed cavity.  Maturity: Approx. 50-60 days

 

 

May be started indoors for early production, or direct-seeded. Very tender, will not survive frost. Direct seed 3" apart thinning to 1' apart in rows 4-6' apart or 6 per mound in hills 4' apart thinning to 3 best plants. Transplant 1' apart in rows 4-6' apart. Cucumbers require good fertility and regular rain or irrigation for abundant yields. Without adequate water, fruits will be misshapen and bitter.

 

Combat striped cucumber beetles by handpicking early AM when the dew makes them sluggish, or use floating row covers, removing when cukes flower. Cucumber beetles are the vector for BW. Pick cukes frequently for best production, or else the plants shut down. Make sure to remove blimps to the compost pile.

 

 

 

Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Or start seeds indoors and transplant when weather permits. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation, straighter fruits and ease of harvest.
Do not sow in cold soil. Minimum germination temperature 60°, optimal range 65–95°, optimal temperature 90°. Emergence takes 13 days at 59°, 6 days at 68°, 4 days at 77°.
