Released in 2007, “Kaiseki” is a long-selling variety sold mainly in Miyazaki. This is the first time in 17 years that a variety suitable for hanging cultivation, which is popular in the warm southwestern region, has been announced, following the release of Kaiseki. Tsurudare, which is planted in late September and harvested until June of the following year, has an extremely long cultivation period, and requires the stamina to withstand the severe cold of winter, a sustained yield rate of excellent fruit shape, and disease resistance. Therefore, developing high-quality varieties is more difficult than other cultivation methods, and we have had to go through a lot of trial and error in order to deliver better new products.
Under these circumstances, we started testing Noevo from 2023 last year. Trial cultivation was carried out mainly among cucumber producers in Miyazaki Prefecture. Through trial production, the continuous production of female flowers, good fruit enlargement, and stable fruit shape were evaluated, leading to this announcement as we believe that this variety will be useful to many growers. .

We named it “Noebo” with the hope that it would guide the evolution of the Kurume Seed Breeding Association and stir up a new wind in the cucumber industry.
