In this study, which was carried out between June and October 1995, three pickling cucumber cultivars ("Fancipak F-1", "Ophix F-1" and "Quest F-1") were used. The seeds were sown in plastic trays on 30 June 1995 and planted outdoor on 5 July 1995. The plants were trained on wires of 0, 50, 100, 150 and 200 cm high. 60 days during the harvests between 2 August and 1 October 1995 fruit weight, fruit height, fruit diameter, head-shape index, soluble solids, colour, first, second and third class fruit weights and total yield on plants were measured.
