This vegetable insect identification bulleting inclides the following insects:
The cucumber (Cucumus sativus) is a warm-season vining crop in the Cucurbit family. Cucumbers suitable for immediate consumption are referred to as “slicers,” while those for processing are “picklers.” Although there once was a large pickling cucumber industry in Kentucky, nearly all cucumbers grown commercially in the state are now for fresh market consumption.
University of Kentuky
Both pickling and slicing cucumbers have been included in this bulletin because many production practices are similar for both types. When necessary, distinctions are made between the cucumber types.
