Cucumber Louisa is an all female parthenocarpic variety, producing a high yield of uniform dark green bitter free fruits. It is very early to crop and will deliver a good crop even under the hot conditions you get in a greenhouse.
Best for use in the greenhouse, the fruits can get up to 35cm in length, but are probably best pick smaller than that. The plants show good resistance to Powdery Mildew.
Harvesting time will depend on sowing time and growing conditions. Well worth a try.
