Growing English/Dutch cucumbers is an art that demands precision and dedication, making the selection of the right cucumber variety a critical decision.

INVICTUS* is a recent addition to Sakata’s cucumber range, thoroughly trialled over the past few years. This hybrid cucumber variety boasts a vigorous growth habit, healthy leaves, and high yielding results in tunnels.

INVICTUS* is characterized by its neat fruit shape and a captivating shade of green, winning the hearts of consumers far and wide. These photos were captured at Graceland Hydroponics, Brits, with our cucurbit product developer, André de Villiers.

Invictus* has a very good disease package, offering high resistance to Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV), Corynespora blight and target spot (Cca) and Scab and gummosis (Ccu) as well as intermediate resistance to Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV), Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (CYSDV) and Powdery mildew (Px).

With its exceptional qualities and adaptability, INVICTUS* is expected to redefine cucumber productions, promising abundant yields and superior produce quality.
