Experiment on sowing dates for once-over harvesting of pickling cucumbers

, : Experiment on sowing dates for once-over harvesting of pickling cucumbers. Acta Horticulturae (52): 159-168

In 2-year trials the Kora was sown on several dates between 11 May and 21 July. Optimum harvesting fruit weight was established as being 50 g. Early sowing on 11 or 21 May offered no clear advantages, neither did late sowing on 11 or 21 July.
