The Q&A Archives: Chinese or Japanese Cucumbers

Question: Where can I buy Chinese or Japanese cucumber seeds? These are excellent in flavor and crispy for canning. I used to buy the seeds from California but I no longer can. Please let me know.

Answer: The Burpee Seed Catalog lists Palace King Hybrid and Orient Express. Both are Oriental type, thin skinned, crisp and tender. You can order online at or phone toll-free at (800) 888-1447. Enjoy!
