Cucumber Varieties for Greenhouse Production


“I want to know what is the best cucumber for greenhouse production and give more of a crop. I called some of the seed companies and the most commonly recommended was Tasty King, but it doesn’t have to be this variety.

Hi Andron,

Thank you for your question. Tasty King is a great variety for greenhouse production and was a good suggestion for the various companies to make. In addition to Tasty King, there are a couple others I would add to the list:

Diva Cucumber

Diva  — Produces distinctly tender, crisp, sweet, bitter-free, and seedless cukes. Foliage is nonbitter, hence not as attractive to cucumber beetles as some varieties. Adapted to open-field production and protected cropping. Harvest at 5-7″. Gynoecious and parthenocarpic. Intermediate resistance to cucumber vein yellowing virus, downy mildew, and powdery mildew. 58 days to maturity.

Sweet Success Cucumber

Sweet Success — These cucumbers are crisp, mild and easy on the digestion. Its all-female vines tolerate scab and mosaic virus. Produces firm, seedless 14″ fruits early in the season. Easy to protect from cucumber beetles by using row cover, which doesn’t need to be removed for pollination. 54 days to maturity.

I hope this information helps you out. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
