Greenhouse type

This all female, greenhouse variety produces 3-4 snack-sized fruits per node, and with shorter internodes between each fruit cluster, you’ll be sure of a bumper harvest! The cylindrical, thin skinned cucumbers are dark green with a pale green flesh that is refreshingly crisp with no bitterness. Cucumber ‘Nimrod’ is scab resistant and also shows some resistance to powdery mildew. Perfect for growing against supports in the greenhouse where these compact, manageable plants are less likely to take over than some varieties. Height: 3m (9’). Spread: 45cm (18”).

More Info

Water cucumber plants regularly. Apply greenhouse shading as required and create a humid atmosphere by regularly spraying or damping down pathways.

Climbing greenhouse types will produce higher yields if allowed to climb. Train the main shoots onto 1.8m (6ft) high nets, canes or strings until they reach the top of their support and then pinch out the growing point. Pinch out sideshoots once fruit begins to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit. Remove male flowers from greenhouse types.

Outdoor ridge types can be pinched out at the main stem after 7 leaves have formed to encourage sideshoots. Outdoor ridge types require pollination by insects - do not remove male flowers from these varieties.

When growing cucumbers, harvest regularly to encourage, long continuous production. Pick the fruits whilst young and tender before they show signs of producing seeds, as older fruits can become bitter. Harvesting cucumbers is best done early in the morning when temperatures remain cool.
