If it’s Telegraph varieties you are looking for, Nunhems is proud to offer their “HiRevolution” varieties that possess a “COMPACT” plant structure, with short internodes and smaller, horizontally-positioned leaves. These varieties are suitable to High Wire systems for long crop cycle production resulting in more balance labour costs (per kg/m²) and high, uniform fruit quality. Varieties include “Hi Power” and “Hi Force”.

For more traditional, umbrella production in either heated or unheated conditions, Nunhems has a large range of Telegraph varieties that will meet your needs. Varieties such as “Taray” and “Brujula” optimize the highest fruit quality, together with strong disease and virus resistance. The extra vigour in these varieties will give you the opportunity to maximise production during cold, short day conditions.

For production in cold and unheated conditions, “Luxell” has been a proven winner as an attractive option for winter Lebanese production. Luxell offers fantastic dark green fruit colour, strong plant vigour and continuous generative plant behaviour, giving great yield.

In the Mini cucumber segment, a new entrant to the market is a variety called “Talisya”. This variety is a perfect addition to your program for the autumn and spring seasons. Talisya displays strong plant vigour with a tendency for continuous, high quality single fruit production without fruit abortions. A real strength of Talisya is its dark green fruit colour together with a deep ribbed texture for longer shelf life, and ample fruit length i.e. 16-17cm.
