Coldsun is a Rijk Zwaan Blueleaf® variety.
Rijk Zwaan’s Blueleaf® is a natural trait, bred into our range of cucumbers. Blueleaf® varieties have dark, blue-green foliage that contains more chlorophyll than other varieties. This enables plants to absorb more light, which converts into more growth and fruiting. The plant is slower to yellow - it remains productive for longer, even in the case of infection with the cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus. Blueleaf® varieties are also better able to withstand viruses, fungi such as Fusarium and mildew, and pests such as whitefly and thrips. Learn more about Blueleaf®.
