The Q&A Archives: Pollination Of Gynoecious Cucumbers

Question: I purchased a packet of "Sweet Success" hybrid cucumbers. The packet said they are gynoecious (all female plants). Will I need a male plant to pollinate these or are they self-pollinating?

Answer: Your cucumbers will set fruit without pollination. No other cucumber plants are necessary for fruit to set on Sweet Success.
