Japanese Soya Cucumber plants are doing just great this year

I’ve grown Japanese Soya cucumbers for each of the last three years. These are very similar to the plastic-wrapped store-bought English cucumber, or Hothouse cucumber, in that they are ribbed and long. The fruit this year are much larger than in years past. The longer they grow, the more the diameter grows and flattens out the deep ridges. These cucumbers are “burpless” due to the seeds being small and few in number. Great treat on a hot day. Here are some photos:

Next cuke I’ll harvest, currently about 16 inches long. Note how the ribs have almost flattened out.
