Excellent vigor and resistance to powdery mildew in this diverse collection of cucumbers. This strain is the culmination of years of selection from an interbreeding population of the most popular open-pollinated cucumber strains available. We selected from this diversity for earliness, longevity of production, and flavor. This hybrid swarm has incredible vigor, producing cucumbers with crisp flavor that are delicious eaten fresh or pickled. A truly beautiful collection of diversity within the theme of delicious productive pickling cucumbers.
"Cucumbers Galore Grex" a name that exemplifies our excitement for how this F5(fifth year) population of cucumbers has evolved. Bred for the challenges of greenhouse production, while also producing equally well in the field, this hybrid swarm was selected for superior powdery mildew resistance, majority parthenocarpic plants (producing cucumbers without the presence of pollinators) and gynoecious tendency (producing majority female flowers and fewer male flowers). We have trialed most of the popular F1 hybrids including favorites like F1 Corinto and F1 Socrates and set out to breed a hybrid swarm of cucumbers that would rival and exceed the production of these expensive greenhouse cucumbers with superior powdery mildew resistance thus allowing for a long harvest season. We used a wide variety of parents including some very interesting greenhouse cucumbers from Japan and many other F1 cucumbers that possessed traits that we desired. This premium seed is offered as a mixed formula from the best producing plants from 2020 and the price of the seed represents that incredible quality of these plants. Enjoy the increased production from the hard work of our team at Wild Mountain Seeds and Seed Peace.
