SLICER CUCUMBER CULTIVAR TRIAL
J. M. White

A fall slicer cucumber cultivar trial was planted 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 750
lb/acre was made. Beds, 5-foot on center and about 5 inches high, were made
and treated for nematodes. Seeds of 18 cultivars and lines were hand planted
* on September 25, 1984. One row plots, 20 feet long with 4 replications in a
randomized complete block design, were used. Two applications of a 5-5-8
and one of a 10-4-10 fertilizer at 500 lb/acre were applied and cultivated to
incorporate at two-week intervals from planting. Overhead irrigation was
applied five times at 0.5 inch rate on an as-needed basis. Once harvest began,
irrigation was not used. Seven harvests were made from November 11 to
December 3.
PSX 681 had the highest total marketable yield and higher overall rating
(Table 1). Supersett had slightly less overall yield, but higher fancy and
No. 1 yields and less culls. FMS-4629 had a 68 percent stand, which might
account for some of its low yield, but the vine growth was also rated below
average as was its disease tolerance.
Seeds were obtained from the following:
AR Arco Seed
AS Asgrow Seed
CA Castle Seed
FM Ferry-Morse Central Science
JH Joseph Harris Library
MO Moran Seed
NK Northrup, King OCT 23 1987
PE Peto Seed
SA Sakata Seed Univ ty of Florida
