Tokiwa Cucumber Seedlings

Certified Organic

Cucumis sativus

Firm and sweet cucumbers with good uniformity.

AKA Tokyo Green Cucumber. This old Japanese variety produces an abundance of very uniform, dark green cucumbers with excellent flavor. The long, slender fruits have tender skin and a sweet, refreshing taste. Unlikely to develop bitterness, even in high temps! The recommended picking size is 1.5" in diameter and 10" or less in length. Harvest often to maintain production and provide trellising.

This variety is part of our Shumei Natural Agriculture Collection. Its growers are part of the global Shumei community and farm using Natural Agriculture practices. They shared seeds with us, which were then grown by our Shumei farmer-in-residence, Kenny Nakagawa. 

This product was grown and processed on our own certified organic farm, Four Fold Farm, in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
