CLASSIFICATIONS
HYBRID

Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination

GYNOECIOUS

Cucumbers grow nearly all female flowers. These cultivars produce higher yields of cucumbers than monoecious cultivars. Some of these cultivars have a ratio of about 70 percent female flowers to 30 percent male flowers. Some other cucumber cultivars have no male flowers, and they require pollination from cultivars that produce male flowers. Packets of all-female flower cultivars often contain dyed male seeds for their simple identification, or the male seeds are in a separate packet. Commercial growers often mix gynoecious cultivars with monoecious cultivars at a ratio of about 9 to 1.
