The perfect addition to summer salads, our grafted 'cues' are both good performers and heavy croppers! Best grown under cover.
The collection includes 2 plants, 1 each of:
Baby Rocky F1 - A vigorous plant that produces baby cues up to 8 to 9cm (3-4in) in length with a delicious crisp taste. Matures early and produces plenty of fruits in both low and high temperatures. Ideal for snacks, salads, and lunch boxes.
Bella F1 - A strong and vigorous grower producing cucumbers up to 35cm (14in) in length with a good, traditional flavour and no bitter after-taste. Ideal for growing in an unheated greenhouse, it’s a reliable variety to grow with excellent mildew tolerance.
Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners’ plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes – particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited! The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants – a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too – even more reason to grow them!
Supplied as well established plants in 9cm pots.
