Longfellow Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) Introduced in 1927 by the Jerome B. Rice Seed Company of Cambridge, New York. This variety was ideal for market growers as a “straight pack” sort for shipment to high grade markets with ideal length, dark green colour, and excellent flavour. Dark green-black tapered fruits are 12 -14 inches long by 2½ -3 inches in diameter. A very uniform producer of large fruit! Definitely the largest cucumber we grow on our farm.
