Cucumber

 

Cool as a cucumber

For many years now Enza Zaden has been breeding successfully in mini-cucumbers for the Middle Eastern markets. Variety selection is based on yield, quality and above all adaptability to long growing seasons and the different climate zones and weather patterns.

Grower needs

Our pickling programme is very successful in Eastern Europe, because it has been developed in cooperation with local growers. This enables us to respond better to the grower needs. Long European cucumbers are eaten in many other major markets around the world. The Enza Zaden breeding programmes are focused on creating high yielding varieties with better disease resistance. 

Parthenocarpic American Slicer cucumber types are popular in Italy, Spain and North America, where they are more and more grown under protected conditions to increase yield potential and quality for export.
