Gynoecious F3 lines of cucumber ( Cucumis sativus L.) selected for multiple-pistillate (MP) flowers per node, were tested for yield potential in the greenhouse and field. In the greenhouse tests, MP lines gave more fruits per plant and higher yields than F1 hybrids. In field tests, MP lines yields were equivalent to commercial hybrids. The good performance of MP lines when compared to adapted hybrids suggests that multiple-pistillate flowering may be a valuable character for increasing yields with once-over harvest systems.
