The cucumber is a fruit that is eaten mainly raw as salad in the Netherlands and Belgium. The cucumber seeds grow best under glass, so in the greenhouse. The cucumber plant is annual and can still deliver dozens of cucumbers. The cultivated cucumber only has female flowers, which without fertilization or pollination cucumber grows.

The cucumber plant
The plant has large leaves that grow over the fruits. The plant is a climbing plant with adhesive tendrils, but can also be grown horizontally growing on the ground. Before there were greenhouses the cucumbers were grown on forcing frames under flat glass. Later the flat glass was put upright and formed a greenhouse. In glasshouse horticulture, the plants are guided upwards along a binding wire. In the Netherlands and Belgium, cucumbers are now available all year round in heated greenhouses (since around 1960).
