I had already tried one Asian cucumber variety, Suyo Long, and wanted to try another. I had seeds from last year that I had never planted, so I used the seeds of Orient Express this year to start late-season cucumber plants. So far, so good. I have baby cucumbers set, so it should not be long till they are ready to pick.
