Crop - CUCUMBERS

Cucumis sativus

In most varieties of cucumber the fruit starts to grow without pollination having taken place. Varieties like the gherkin require pollination to produce fruit. These varieties have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Both flower types produce nectar but, only the male flower produces pollen. Pollination can occur through self-pollination (pollination with pollen from the same plant) however, cross-pollination also plays an important role in the gherkin.
