Cucumber Seeds - Greenfit F1

KiliKili Posts: 1,119
Hi all, approaching that time where we get our seeds sorted. Can anyone advise if they have grown Cucumber - Greenfit F1 and what where their results. Is this a good one to go for.

Failing that any recommendations for a greenhouse all female cucumber please.

Many thanks

Stay safe out there.

    Tried a few varieties Kili and settled on Passandra in the greenhouse and Marketmore outside.  Passandra is a smaller cuke which suits me as I'm on my own but they crop well and I always end up with galloons of cucumber soup  :D

  • I've not tried that one but have had good results with 'Telegraph improved' F1 and Telepathy F1 (similar, a bit earlier.)

    Thanks herbaceous and Bob. I'll have a look at those two.

    I've tried a few over the last few years - Luxury F1 - Carmen F1 and Mini munch F1 , Luxury and Carmen were poor croppers for me mini munch was ok which I think I will try again this year . I bought some seed the other day from premier seeds ( cheap good quality ) I am going back to my old trusted cucumber Passandra best cucumber I've grown before , easily get 15-20+ cucumbers off passandra .  I got less than 5 on carmen / luxury .

    This new cucumber from India is very good, and more than a little different from any others we have ever seen.

    This season will be my 3rd with Poona and I saved their seeds.

    You need to make a small supporting trellis.
