The effects of high (day/night=30/25°C; H) and low (23/17°C; L) air temperatures on the development of pistillate flowers (PFs) during the seedling stage were clarified in 7 cucumber cultivars (Cucumis sativus L.) in order to identify potential high-yield cultivars in summer. Most of the cultivars developed nodes at a higher rate with H treatment than with the L treatment; however, the number of PF nodes and the total number of PFs on a plant were decreased with the H treatment in ‘028’ (multi… CONTINUE READING
