Suyo Long Cucumber - Remarkable Flavor
A Chinese heirloom, delicious, burp-less, not bitter, almost seedless flesh. Fruits grow to 15” long, thin, crisp and tender-exceptionally hardy, productive and fine-flavored even under adverse conditions. Trellis these to get straight fruits or leave on the ground for curved shaped fruits.
Fruits are spiny when young, and become smoother at peak maturity. Fruits tend to curl on one end. Widely adapted, heat tolerant and sets early and often.
Cucumbers are thought to have originated in India at the foot of the Himalayas, and cultivated in western Asia for 3,000 years. Well known by the ancient Greeks and Romans, introduced to China in the 2nd century BC. Columbus brought cucumbers to the New World in 1494.
Great for fresh eating, pickling or cooking with a mild to slightly sweet flavor.
Cucumbers need to be continuously harvested to keep up production. If the fruits yellow on the vine the plant will stop producing altogether, To harvest twist them off the vine or snip them with clippers to make sure you do not damage the vines.

Suyo Long-the best cucumber
It is the greatest cucumber I have ever grown. Very crisp, tasty, tender and very productive. We are eating them fresh, pickling them and it is the only one we are growing now. Excellent cukes, just try them and you will judge for yourself. I have bought them from Terroir Seeds for years. Thanks guys.
Suyo Long, Best Heirloom Cukes Around
Everything about Suyo Long is noteworthy. The long delicious, almost seedless, never bitter flesh is perfect in consistency and taste. It is quite disease resistant, prolific all season long, and has been a long time staple in this gardeners plot. It is also great with any type of soil, both rich dirt and heavy clay soils have had no effect on the excellent production of this heirloom. A winner all around.
Really love this Cuke. Great cucumber flavor. Very sweet and crispy. Tender skin and tiny seeds. Reminds me of the English burpless ones you get in stores but with garden cuke flavor. I didnt get a great production from it though. It struggled a bit in the heat here. Plenty of flowers but not a lot of fruit set. I will try it again in a spot with more shade.
Germination, growth, and yield were outstanding
Germination, growth, and yield were outstanding. It produced over a long period of time and the fruit was crisp and tasty with a small seed cavity. The irregular shape cut cross wise was very attractive in salads. The extreme curve of the fruit and rough skin probably is a non-starter to sell in stores only a guess on my part but can't be beat in a home garden. A real winner.
