Xin Tai, organic seeds
Is a cucumber from Northern China for growing in green houses and outdoors. It's a very early, rough, slightly ridged cucumber with a taste that is among the absolutely best. Xin Tai is the fast little brother of Suyo Long. It is not quite as long, "˜just"™ 35 cm and does not have quite so many ridges either. Xin Tai is the earliest greenhouse cucumber we have tried. It is a normally pollinated cucumber and yields seeds if it is allowed to grow on. It is healthy and sound and never grows bitter. Towards the end of the season Xin Tai can produce curved cucumbers if it is allowed to grow freely on the ground. However, if you bind up the plant, almost all the fruits become straight. A portion contains about 5-6 seeds.
