Cucumber Long European - Non-heated greenhouse Borja Borja is one of the main standard hybrids used in autumn, winter and spring crops in non-heated greenhouses in Southern Europe. Borja is grown widely because of its high production capacity of excellent quality fruits and very good shelf life and marketability. The fruits are averagely 30-34 cm in length, straight and dark green. Borja has a nice balance between plant and fruit production and shows very good regrowth with strong side shoots after the top has reached the wire. Kalunga Kalunga has proved itself to be a very flexible and reliable variety, suitable for growing in a wide range of non-heated greenhouse conditions. The plant is quite compact but very strong in its growth habit. The production of fruits is well balanced throughout the production cycle. Kalunga produces high quality straight fruits, averagely 31-32 cm in length. It is a high producing variety, easy to grow for spring/summer as well as autumn crops. Polargo Polargo is a relatively new Enza Zaden hybrid recommended for non-heated greenhouse production in most of the important cucumber growing regions of Europe. Even with quite low temperatures Polargo maintains its size and quality. The plant habit is strong growing and fruit setting is excellent and uniform in the whole plant. Polargo produces dark, straight shiny fruits averagely 32-36 cm in length. A "must have" for the professional cucumber grower. Borja Midi Tristan Tristan is the standard midi type cucumber for all professional growers. The average fruit length is 22-25 cm. It is recommended for all heated greenhouse spring, summer and autumn crops under natural light and for winter crops under artificial lights. Strong against head scorch, necrosis and chlorosis. The plant habit is strong and generative which gives a very high and stable production on the stem, and later on a very good yield from the laterals. A unique variety, Tristan is a winner.
