WHAT CAUSES YELLOWING IN CUCUMBERS?
Yellowing occurs from ethylene exposure. Keep cucumbers away from ethylene producing produce, such as tomatoes, and from ripening rooms.
HOW LARGE IS YOUR FARM AND HOW MANY CUCUMBERS ARE YOU ABLE TO GROW PER YEAR?
GLG is a 90-acre greenhouse farm on one site that produces over 4.9 million dozen cucumbers per year.
WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD I STORE MY CUCUMBERS?
Cucumbers are stored best between 48-51 F, (8.9 – 10.6C) with optimum humidity of 85 – 95%. High temperatures cause seedless cucumbers to become soft, while cold temperatures will cause them to decay rapidly.
WHAT CAUSES MOISTURE UNDER THE PLASTIC WRAP?
This is an indication of water damage and/or chill injury. Seedless cucumbers should not be merchandised under sprayers or misting units as this will cause moisture to build between the seedless cucumber and wrap, which causes very quick decay.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SHELF LIFE OF CUCUMBERS?
12-14 days from harvest or pick date when properly stored.

Yes, all cucumbers produced at Great Lakes Greenhouses are non-GMO.
