"Last year, we did a trial with snack cucumbers, which was a great success. We grew the Quarto and Qwerti varieties from Rijk Zwaan, which do very well when it comes to taste and quality," Martin says. He has great confidence in the cultivation. "The snack cucumbers have now reached the level of snack tomatoes ten years ago. Also, not a lot of seeds are available yet, and the market won't be saturated any time soon."
The snack cucumbers are sold to European retail, in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom respectively. The season in Spain runs from September until June. For now, Scherpenhuizen will have to do without snack cucumbers during the summer months.
