Gherkins are a product in development. Mechanical harvesting is becoming increasingly important and besides gherkins grown for the processing industry, we are also developing more and more varieties for covered cultivation. That is why Rijk Zwaan has a wide range for various purposes. Gherkins are grown indoors as well as outdoors and horizontally as well as vertically. Rijk Zwaan selects its gherkins not only on a good external presentation but also on excellent internal qualities. For growers we aim for a good yield and strong plants with good stamina. And finally, mechanical harvesting demands a specific crop type.
