El Toro F1 is a long green 'Dutch type' cucumber, almost without ribs and with very short neck. Fruit size Ca. 30-32 Cm with a fruit weight of 400 gram. El Toro F1 has an attractive dark green and slightly shiny skin, without prickles.
El Toro F1 is a fast growing cucumber with an early production. El Toro F1 is very suitable to plant as a second crop or to replant twice to get an even higher yield per season. The first fruit low on a plant should be removed when very small so that the plant can develop first before bearing fruit.
El Toro F1 produces a vigorous plant, which is also tolerant for Gummosis, a problem that occurs when temperatures are lower than desired for cucumbers. This makes El Toro F1 suitable for growing in the summer in tunnels or under plastic without heating. El Toro F1 is also tolerant for leaf spot. Planting distance is 40 centimeters.
