Gherkin and cucumber seeds research in the Netherlands

Find out more about the research into gherkin and cucumber seeds carried out by Majstro Seeds B.V in the Netherlands.


Research and development

Before breeding varieties started in early 2000,  professional breeding experience was already achieved by the MAJSTRO SEEDS team in many vegetable crops and specifically Cucumber and Gherkin.


All experience and information in our programmes enabled us to breed the best suitable varieties for our customers. Every year new lines and hybrids are tested in different climate-zones before we release them to the market.


A considerable amount of time and effort has been spent in keeping us up to date with the available breeding technology. Our research to date, combined with the results we have achieved, indicates that our current system meets the highest standards.
