Plant Information
Introduced in 1842, Long Green Improved cucumbers are related to an even older variety called Long Green Turkey, which was grown as far back as the 1700s. Described as vigorous, productive, and reliable, its yields are very heavy but its maintenance very light. Aside from being intolerant of frost, it's not fussy about much and will produce a continuous harvest when picked on a daily basis. Long Green Improved is definitely one of the largest varieties, surprising you with cucumbers as long as a foot and as wide as 3 inches. Their skin is a rich green color with black spines and their flesh is crisp and white, making their sliced appearance ideal for salads. And their flavor is light and refreshing so they're delicious just picked as well as delightful when pickled.
