In this method, the flower head is not removed from the plant. The plant continues to grow, which is not the case in traditional cultivation. The mature ones can be reached by the pickers at a fixed height. That makes the harvesting process ergonomic.
Applying the rerooting technique does not interrupt growth during the season. The quality of Green Diamonds is therefore consistent for 10 months, and always equally good. But the most important part: constantly available!
Advantages of rerooting
- Growth is not interrupted during the season
- No plant removal
- No costs of purchasing new plants
- Delivery guarantee for the retailer
- More balanced and efficient work flow
The lifespan of a cucumber is 30 days, from the flower to consumption. With the GD-Combinatie Teeltmethode®, controlled climate regulation, a smart variety selection and thinning the plant considerably shortens the cultivation period. For this reason, Green Diamonds can always guarantee fresh cucumbers. This increases the yield for the grower, buyer and retailer. This cultivation method also doubles the dry material in the cucumber, making it more crunchy and more tasty!
