Insect pollination of cucumber (Cucumis sativus var. Aodai Melhorada)


Naturalia Sao Paulo 18: 77-82
Insect pollination of cucumber (Cucumis sativus var. Aodai Melhorada)
Honey bees (Apis mellifera) constituted 82.6% of visitors to cucumber flowers. The average sugar content of cucumber (Cucumis sativus) nectar was 57.6+or-3.3 micro g/flower and the percentage of sugar in the nectar collected from worker honey bees was 36.3%. Total protein content and ether extract in the pollen were 25.0+or-8.2% and 1.93+or-0.07%, respectively. Cucumber plants were grown with 3 different treatments: areas netted without honey bees, netted with honey bees and open-pollinated.
