Delft is an early maturing parthenocarpic hybrid Dutch/English type cucumber ideally suited for production in greenhouses. Delft is adapted for summer to winter production. It has a very high yield potential, bearing very uniform, straight, glossy, dark green fruit with slight ribbing and a neat neck and tends to yield a high percentage of large and extra-large fruit. Delft is a strong grower with a medium open plant habit.  A big advantage is its high resistance to Scab and gummosis (Ccu), Leaf spot (Cm) and intermediate resistance to Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV).
