Hey folks-

Johnny's has a good option, but it's not Asian, but it is burpless:

Diva- Delicious 2002 All-America Selections winner bred by Johnny's.
AAS trial judges throughout North America agreed Diva just might be the
best-tasting cuke on the planet. Diva looks like a regular salad
cucumber but with a smooth, thin, no-peel skin. Distinctly tender,
crisp, sweet, bitterfree and seedless. Especially delicious picked
small, about the size of a pickle. Details for plant techies: (1) plants
are gynoecious (product only female flowers) and parthenocarpic (fruits
set without pollination), so they're seedless; (2) disease tolerant to
both mildews and scab; (3) plants are nonbitter, hence not very
attractive to cucumber beetles.
