Japanese cucumber is an annual vine plant that is harvested mainly between July and September.
The vines grow over 6.5 feet tall on supporting frames. The leaves grow alternately on the vines, which are hairy with several pointed lobes. Eating cucumbers in summer prevents heat stroke because their high water content helps cool down your body. It is also a good vegetable to eat in order to avoid dehydration when you’ve lost appetite from heat fatigue.
Suzuki Farm’s Japanese cucumbers are very juicy thanks to their thicker skins. They are perfect for salads and pickles.
