Questions - Chinese cucumber, futsu squash, etc.
I'm new to this forum, but will probably end up being a regular, due to the amount of Asian vegetable seeds I have been ordering:).
I was wondering about the Chinese yellow cucumber. I ordered the seeds a few days ago. How do you like it? It's supposed to have great yields. I like the color too. I try to grow anything that looks different!
I understand the long bean is very popular here. I ordered the Chinese mosaic long bean - can't wait to try that out! I also ordered hin choy (hope this is the same as tricolor amaranth), green yard long bean, black futsu squash, kazakh melon, Thai green pea eggplant, loofa gourd, tigger melon, and edible chrysanthemum. I read in one catalog that the black futsu squash requires a pollinator nearby, such as a butternut, buttercup, or hubbard squash. Is that right? None of the other catalogs mentioned it. Also, the luffa I ordered is Luffa cylindrica - is that the same as the angled gourd?
Is it true that Thai green pea eggplant won't produce the first year? I live in a hot climate; don't know if that makes a difference.
