SLICER CUCUMBER CULTIVAR TRIAL

J. M. White

A spring slicer cultivar trial was conducted on Myakka fine sand in
Sanford, Florida, as one location in the Southern Regional Cultivar Evaluation
Program.

A preplant broadcast application of a 5-5-8 fertilizer at a rate of 500
pounds per acre was made. Beds, 5 foot on center and about 5 inches high, wera
made and treated for nematodes. Seeds of 18 cultivars and lines were hand
planted on March 20, 1984. One row plots, 25 feet long with 4 replications in
a randomized complete block design, were used. Three applications of a 5-5-8
and one of a 10-4-10 fertilizer at 500 pounds per acre were applied and
cultivated to incorporate at two-week intervals from planting.


One application of 1/2
pound Methomyl per acre was
rainfall was not sufficient
May 10 to June 1.


pound Benlate plus 2 pounds Dithane M-45 plus 1
made on May 15. Irrigation was used 4 times when
for good growth. Seven harvests were made from


Centurion had the highest total and fancy yield and the lowest percent
culls. Poinsett 76 received the best overall rating for fruit quality, colors
shape, disease resistance and vine growth. GTN No. 7 produced the earliest
fruit followed by Centurion, NVH 2100 and SG 897 (Table 1).

Seeds were obtained from the following:


Arco Seed
Asgrow Seed
Castle Seed
Ferry-Morse
Joseph Harris
Moran Seed
Northrup, King
Peto Seed
Sakata Seed
Sluis and Groot

YEarly yield = Fancy plus No. 1 fruit in harvest 1 and 2.

zYield expressed in hundred weight per acre; to convert to 48 pound bushels
per acre multiply by 2.083; multiply by 111.982 to convert to kg/ha.
