A concern which has restricted the use of parthenocarpic pickling cucumbers in the
United States has been firmness of fruit processed by brining. Fruit firmness and defects
of parthenocarpic and nonparthenocarpic pickling cucumbers were evaluated in 1992 and
1993. Fruits were produced with or without pollination by growing plants with...

Gynoecious inbred lines of cucumbers (Cucumis sativus
L.) with high (HF), medium (MF) and low (LF) percentage of
gynoecious plants were used in crosses with monoecious
Chinese cultivars with high (HN), medium (MN) and low (LN)
percentage of nodes with female flowers. F₁ and F₂ progenies
from these parents crossed...
A sensitive assay for the analysis of contaminating segments
in pseudorecombinants constructed from a seed-transmissible (CVM-Pg)
and a non-seed-transmissible (CMV-Le) strain of cucumber mosaic
virus was developed using partial RNase T₁ digestion. Isolated
genomic RNA segments produced unique digestion patterns when 3'-
end labeled, treated with RNase T₁, and subjected...
Pediococcus cerevisiae, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum,
Leuconostoc mesenteroides, Lactococcus diacetylactis Bifidobacterium
bifidum, Leuconostoc oenos, and mixed cultures of Propionibacterium
shermanii and P. cerevisiae were used to ferment cucumber juice brine
(CJB) at 22-26°C for 1.5 months. Sugar utilization ranged from 14.6 to 86.1%.
pH of the fermented CJB ranged from...
Pectinmethylesterase (PME) activity in fresh cucumber
fruit was determined. The effects of several cationic
species, temperature, pH, and acetic acid on the activity
of cucumber PME was investigated. The efficacy of
blanching, infiltration with CaCl₂ or acetic acid, and
fermentation with 0 and 40 mM CaCl₂ on inhibition of

The frequency of aphid transmission of cucumber mosaic virus
from diseased plants at different times after inoculation was determined.
A cycle of infectious virus was found. Primary leaves
of lima bean plants were inoculated mechanically when the first trifoliate
leaf appeared and were kept at different temperatures. At
