Abstract: In this study, which was carried out between June and October 1995, three pickling cucumber cultivars ("Fancipak F-1", "Ophix F-1" and "Quest F-1") were used. The seeds were sown in plastic trays on 30 June 1995 and planted outdoor on 5 July 1995. The plants were trained on wires of 0, 50, 100, 150 and 200 cm high. 60 days during the harvests between 2 August and 1 October 1995 fruit weight, fruit height, fruit diameter, head-shape index, soluble solids, colour, first, second and third class fruit weights and total yield on plants were measured. At the end of the study, it was observed that growing pickling cucumbers on wires gave better results when compared with growing them on the ground, from the point of view of yield and quality. 150 cm high wires gave 16 % higher yield than all the other heights. On 150 cm wire height, which gave the highest yield in all the cultivars, the yields obtained in pickling cucumbers were 3.13 kg/m(2) in "cv. Fancipak F-1", 3.46 kg/m(2) in "cv. Ophix F-1" and 3.05 kg/m(2) in "cv. Quest F-1".
Description: Bu çalışma, 20-23 Mayıs 1997 tarihleri arasında Adana[Türkiye]'de düzenlenen 1. International Symposium on Cucurbits'de bildiri olarak sunulmuştur.
