"Nunhems Alpita F1 is the new standard for Spanish cucumbers"

Knowledge of the commercial chain and its permanent collaboration with specialized growers have made it possible for Nunhems to lead a global revolution in the Spanish cucumber industry for the second time. Twenty years ago, Nunhems pioneered the launch of the first parthenocarpic varieties (crops that do not needto be pollinated by bees), which brought ground-breaking changes, both in the product's quality and in the yield. 

For the campaign that is now starting, Nunhems has defined the new standards for quality, colour and freshness with Alpita F1, managing to perfectly meet the interests from both producers and traders.

From a commercial standpoint, the Alpita F1 is a sure bet, as it offers an unbeatable outer appearance, very attractive for consumers. Especially noteworthy is its dark green colour, with a shiny and crunchy skin. It also has a long shelf life and an excellent post-harvest behaviour, without deformation or loss of freshness. It is the best option for faraway destinations.

The perfect solution for winter cultivation
The Alpita F1 is ideal for the winter cycle and harvests between October and January. Its plant, very dark and vigorous, offers growers the advantage of being able to choose the time of harvesting in a flexible manner, as it remains fresh until the very end, making it possible to do so when prices are most favorable.

With a uniform production, free of inner imperfections and a length of 12 to 16 centimetres, the Alpita F1 also stands out for its high winter productivity. It is not too sensitive to changes in temperature or moisture and its fruit is very resistant to cracking, powdery mildew and Cucumber Vein Yellowing Virus (CVYV).
